I am happy to confirm that esteemed novelist Nadeem Aslam will indeed be joining us for a month-long residency this February. The kick-off event is a public reading from his work, Thursday February 7 at 7 PM in the Marvin Center. A dessert reception will follow. If you’re interested in attending the reception, please follow this link and register.
Aslam will also give a four session reading course devoted to three novels by contemporary British authors. The course is English 702 “Studies in Contemporary Literature” and is one credit. It will meet on the four Tuesdays in February in Rome Hall 663 (the English Department’s small conference room) from 6:30-7:30. So far the following students have been accepted:
If you are not on this list and would like to be, please contact me immediately. This course is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Happy beginning of the spring semester! All of us in the English Department hope that it is off to a good start.
