EDITOR'S NOTE: This version corrects the place of the lecture and changes content of talk to what he is reading.

Biographer Edmund Morris will speak at 7 p.m. March 5 in the McMaster Center of the Main Library for Authors! Authors!

He has been reading Selected Stories of Anton Chekhov, translated by Larissa Volokhonsky and Richard Pevear.

Thoughts on the book: "What I like about it is what I like in all good literature: the ability to focus on microscopic detail. Details are what makes literary description come alive, the eye for the significant detail that most writers ignore."
