Jesmyn Ward Mar 11, 2013 from 07:30 PM to 08:30 PM Shirley Recital Hall, Elberson Fine Arts Center,
In Salvage the Bones, Jesmyn Ward gives us the Batiste family: Esch, a pregnant 14-year-old, her teenage brothers and their alcoholic father, who are watching Hurricane Katrina brew over the Gulf. Drawing on her own experiences as a survivor of Katrina, Ward offers a troubling but ultimately empowering tale of familial bonds in the face of overwhelming circumstances. Reception follows talk. Salvage the Bones won the 2011 National Book Award for Fiction and the American Library Association’s Alex Award. Ward has been called “fearless and toughly lyrical” (The Library Journal). Her unflinching portrayals of young black men and women struggling to thrive in a South ravaged by poverty and natural disaster have been praised for their “graphic clarity” (The Boston Globe) and “hugeness of heart” (O: The Oprah Magazine). Ward’s precise and graceful narratives make her a fitting heir to the rich literary tradition of the American South. Ward received her MFA in creative writing from the University of Michigan, where she won five Hopwood Awards for her fiction, essays and drama. She held a Stegner Fellowship at Stanford University from 2008-2010, and served as the Grisham Writer in Residence at the University of Mississippi during the following year. Ward currently teaches creative writing at the University of Southern Alabama in Mobile. Sponsored by the Office of Cultural Events. Recommended for a mature audience.

Defining Democracy: Electoral Reform and the Struggle for Power in New York City A Reading and Discussion with Daniel Prosterman Feb 26, 2013 from 07:30 PM to 08:30 PM Club Dining Room, Corrin Refectory,
Defining Democracy, written by Salem College professor Daniel Prosterman, examines struggles over electoral reform in New York City to clarify our understanding of democracy’s evolution in the United States and the world. In the midst of global crises concerning the purpose and power of government during the Great Depression, Second World War and early Cold War, New Yorkers debated the meaning of self-rule in the United States. Through a series of campaigns over the expansion of voting rights in New York City, activists challenged the boundaries of who could be elected, what interests could be represented and ultimately, what policies could be implemented at the local level. Prosterman is assistant professor of history and director of the Salem Signature General Education Program at Salem College. Sponsored by the Office of Cultural Events, with support from BOOKMARKS.
