|Writers Conference 101 book group formed|
Writers Conference 101 for Spring 2008 lists no tuition, no credits, no homework. Okay, so there's homework! Read suggested poetry, fiction, drama and discuss it with other readers.
The UND English Department and Barnes & Noble are sponsoring a book group to be held at the Tower Cafe in Barnes & Noble in Grand Forks from 2 to 3:30 p.m. for five Sundays in January through March. No need to register, simply stop in, grab a cup of something warm, and prepare to discuss the selected books. We will discuss one book by five of the six authors attending the 39th Annual UND Writers Conference, "Revolutions," March 25-29. Keep an eye out for additional opportunities to discuss the works of Salman Rushdie.
Jan. 27 - Russell Banks - Affliction, fiction
Feb. 3 - Peter Kuper - Stop Forgetting To Remember, an "autobiogrpahy of Kuper's alter-ego"
Feb. 17 - Amiri Baraka (aka LeRoi Jones) -- The Dutchman (reading of play)
March 2 - Alice Fulton - Sensual Math, poetry
March 16 - Junot Diaz - The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, fiction
Barnes & Noble and B Dalton are graciously extending a 10 percent discount on all books written by this year's Writers Conference authors. The schedule for the Writers Conference can be found at http://www.undwritersconference.org/wc-schedule.htm . Since you're not being graded, feel free to stop in even if you have not read the selected text.
