CAMPUS NEWS & EVENTS
|A.G. Harmon to Give Gates Memorial Reading|
On Thursday, February 26, at 7 p.m., Southern novelist A.G. Harmon will give the Fan Gates Memorial Reading in the Library Seminar Room. Harmon's precise and evocative prose has religious and symbolic resonances that Flannery O'Connor would recognize and salute. Doris Betts, who selected his novel A House All Stilled for the Taylor Prize, says, "Harmon's style has deft flicks of description and insight, similar to the way Graham Greene might toss out a selected metaphor, then move on." Don't miss this event!
