Hubert O’Hearn

While preparing this post, I discovered that Hubert O’Hearn attended Queen’s University at Kingston immediately after I graduated. He also studied English Literature with many of the same professors as I, so we had a delightful chat on Facebook about our memories of those days and the people who taught us. Thanks, Hubert!

What are you working on now?
1) I’m finishing a suite of four One Act plays on a theme of Human Rights
2) My Human Rights reader (For Freedom Vol. 1: The Fight for Global Human Rights 1948-2015) is due for release this fall
3) And I’m working on a bio of Bono, centered on his work as a Human Rights activist

Hubert’s reading recommendation:
I read (and interviewed) a fantastic new writer based out of San Francisco named Sean Taylor. He has a book of short stories called Your Smallest Bones. He gets it. He really really gets it.
