The Libraries and the Creative Writing Program will sponsor two more Writers in the Library readings this semester. Mark your calendars.
On Monday, April 15, Writers in the Library will host poets Marilyn Kallet and Keith Norris, 7:00 p.m. in the Hodges Library auditorium. Kallet is director of UT’s Creative Writing Program, and Norris, a graduate of the Creative Writing Program, is on the English faculty at Pellissippi State Community College. Kallet will read from her recently published book, The Love That Moves Me. Norris will read from “Backwoods Inferno,” his hilarious backwoods version of Dante’s journey through Hell. The public is invited and is guaranteed to be entertained.
Writers in the Library on Monday, April 22, will feature readings by student winners of UT’s Graduate Writing Prizes. Each year, students in the Creative Writing Program compete for the John C. Hodges Graduate Writing Prizes in fiction and poetry. The Graduate Writing Prizes are made possible by the English department through the John C. Hodges Better English Fund, endowed by the long-time UT English professor and author of the Harbrace College Handbook, for whom the Hodges Library also is named. The public is invited to hear the talented Creative Writing Program candidates.
Writers in the Library is sponsored by the University of Tennessee Libraries and the UT Creative Writing Program in association with the John C. Hodges Better English Fund.
