Holloway 9/30: Harryette Mullen

This is very exciting, people.
The Holloway Series in Poetry

Thursday, September 30 at 6:30 in 315 Wheeler, the Maude Fife Room

HARRYETTE MULLEN'S poetry books include Recyclopedia, winner of a PEN Beyond Margins Award in 2007, and Sleeping with the Dictionary, which received the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, the National Book Critics Circle award, and was a National Book Award finalist in 2002. She currently lives in Los Angeles where she teaches American poetry, African American literature, and creative writing at UCLA.

She is the 2010 Holloway/Mix Blood Poet. Before her reading, she will give a talk at 4PM in 300 Wheeler. The title of that talk is “The Civil War: Masters vs. Slaves” (The Battle at Brice's Crossroads and the Massacre at Fort Pillow).

I'm teaching Sleeping with the Dictionary this fall - can't wait. Any chance this will be recorded?

The Holloway reading is always recorded -- I can't say whether the lecture will be (though I hope it is!).

I taught Sleeping with the Dictionary a few years ago and it went over great, I thought.
