Brown Bag Lecture Series

Friday, October 27, 2017

Attention all literary aficionados! Dr. Gene Young, Professor of English at Sam Houston State University, will speak on “Texas Literature: Some Favorite Stories about Texas Writers” at the October 27th Brown Bag Lecture Series. Dr. Young will give a brief background and assessment of Texas literature. His presentation will include a handful of his favorite stories about a small selection of the better-known Texas fiction writers – J. Frank Dobie, Katherine Anne Porter, Elmer Kelton, Sandra Cisneros, Larry McMurtry, and Cormac McCarthy. Dr. Young has been reading Texas literature since he was a boy in the Texas Panhandle. One of his teaching specialties is, in fact, the literature, culture, and folklore of Texas. He has been a full-time Professor in the Department of English at SHSU since 1992. His main interest outside teaching is traditional American music. Attendees may bring a brown bag lunch. Lunch time begins at 11:30 and the lecture at noon. Beverages will be provided.
