Library Author Series: Crosswords as Literature

Crosswords as literature? Yes! An unusual literary event with prolific crossword puzzle author Vic Fleming

Judge Vic Fleming presents Life is a puzzle – Let's fill in the blanks, an interactive lecture in which he shares how he became a prolific crossword author and demonstrates how "crossword puzzles are a lot like life."

A judge in Little Rock, Ark., since 1997 and an adjunct professor at the Bowen School of Law, Vic Fleming is married to Steamboat Springs artist Marion Kahn. In his spare time, over the past 15 years, he has written over 1,000 published crossword puzzles, including 47 in the New York Times and the one that's in the current issue of Steamboat Magazine. He also had a 12-year stint writing the weekly "I Swear Crossword" that was syndicated to several papers in the South. He is the author of two non-puzzle books, the editor of two non-puzzle books, and the author of a song that was featured in the 2006 documentary Wordplay. A multi-faceted and multi-talented person of the arts, Judge Fleming was inducted into the Arkansas Writers Hall of Fame in 2007.

Library Author Series: Bud Werner Memorial Library presents an ongoing program of free author talks throughout the year. A diverse range of award-winning authors continues to speak about their literary works and their writing processes. Each talk is followed by a Q&A with the community.
