Congratulations to Stevenson Professor Anthony Moll, who straddles a position within the Business Communication and English departments as a teacher of writing, on the publication of his first book, Out of Step: A Memoir, published by the Ohio State University Press, and the reading from his work he shared with the Stevenson community.
Moll, who teaches both journalism and creative writing, read excerpts from his book to a packed house on Sept. 25, explaining that the book is "a literary memoir about a bisexual, working-class kid joining the army during 'Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.' It’s a queer, anti-war coming-of-age story."
The book was selected in 2017 by Michael Kardos as the winner of the Non/Fiction Prize series from The Journal & The Ohio State University Press. The prize included publication with OSU Press’ literary imprint, Mad Creek Books.
Moll spoke about the creative process of writing the book to students and faculty members, who asked questions and listened to his often-poignant selections from the book. The event was co-hosted by the Schools of Design and Humanities & Social Sciences.
