The UTA Department of English will hold the 2018 Hermanns Lecture Series on Wednesday, March 28. This year’s theme is “Women & Writing.” Professors Laura Kopchick, Amy Bernhard, and Tim Richardson have assembled an exciting panel of award-winning women writers whose work exemplifies the three major genres our Creative Writing program features. Starting at 10 AM, Sanderia Faye, author of "Mourner’s Bench," will read selections from her fiction. At 11 AM, Sasha Pimentel, author of "For Want of Water" and "Insides She Swallowed," will read selections from her poetry. The third speaker begins at 12 PM when Lina Ferreira, author of "Don’t Come Back," will read selections from her creative non-fiction. Later that afternoon, from 3 PM-4 PM, Dr. Desiree Henderson will moderate a roundtable discussion with our three guest speakers entitled “Troubling Domestic Narratives,” which will focus on the way the term “domestic” has been used so often to describe writing by women and so rarely to characterize writing by men. The speakers’ presentations and book signings will be in CAPPA Building (ARCH) 204, and the roundtable will occur in the Lone Star Room at the Maverick Activities Center. We look forward to seeing you there!
