Thursday Thoughts with SIUE on October 23
Creative Nonfiction and the Contemporary Memoir
Edwardsville, IL – On Thursday, October 23, from 9:30-10:30am, Valerie Vogrin, Associate Professor, English Language and Literature will present Creative Nonfiction and the Contemporary Memoir.
What is creative nonfiction? Who writes memoirs? (It’s not just former presidents and movie stars!) This talk will introduce the popular genre of creative nonfiction in book length and essay form. Both readers and writers will be provided with reading lists, reading recommendations, and print and electronic resources for further study.
These presentations are in partnership with the SIUE Office of Educational Outreach, with technical equipment provided by the SIUE Meridian Society. They are open to the public.
