WSU will host graduate and author Brian Krans at 7 p.m. June 10 on the first floor of the Darrell Krueger Library for a book reading and signing of his third novel, "Assault Rifles & Pedophiles: An American Love Story."
Intertwining his experiences working retail and reporting for newspapers, Krans writes his own version of a classic love story. He describes the book as “(skipping) along the boundary separating fact from fiction, hoping to tell a story so believable it must be untrue."
Krans graduated from WSU in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in mass communication with an emphasis in journalism. During his reporting career he has covered topics from Hurricane Katrina to homicide to the politics of antibiotic resistance to the health benefits of a Disney princess' dance routine, and his work has been published in a number of outlets. Originally from Wisconsin, Krans now resides in Oakland, Calif.
