Every year, the English Department brings noted writers to campus through Wordfest, our annual reading series. This year, for the first time, we have extended a special invitation to alumni and others to join us in reading a book by one of our visiting writers.
Wordfest reading: Dinty W. Moore, memoirist
Monday, April 1st
Duesenberg Recital Hall and VUCA lobby
We selected Dinty W. Moore’s Between Panic and Desire, a not quite conventional memoir of fatherhood, television, and U.S. politics in the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s. Both personal and cultural, Moore’s memoir “documents the disorienting experience of growing up in a postmodern world” through a variety of forms and not without a healthy dose of humor.
But you won’t have to have read the book to enjoy the roundtable discussion of his work and life as a writer and the 40-minute reading from Between Panic and Desire. Book signing and reception will follow in the VUCA lobby.
