Country rock musician Steve Earle will display some of his alternate talents — writer, poet, playwright — as the first reader in the spring Writers in the Library series. Earle will entertain us at 7pm on Monday, January 30, 2006, in the Hodges Library auditorium on the University of Tennessee campus. The event is free and open to the public.
The UT Libraries’ Writer in Residence, RB Morris, who organizes the Writers in the Library series, is thrilled to bring Steve Earle to campus. “Steve sold out the Tennessee Theater at a pretty steep ticket price last winter playing with his band. Now we have him coming back to town to lay some spoken word on us at Hodges Library auditorium that seats maybe 200 people and is free and open to the public. I just hope the Library’s still there when it’s over,” quipped Morris.
