|A Reading and Talk with Award-winning Author Stephanie Powell Watts|
Stephanie Powell Watts, associate professor of English at Lehigh University, was one of ten recipients of the Whiting Writers' Award in October 2013 by the Mrs. Giles Whiting Foundation. Her debut short story collection, We Are Taking Only What We Need, also received the Ernest J. Gaines Award for Literary Excellence in January of 2013. We Are Taking Only What We Need has been frequently honored in the past year. O magazine named the collection as one of 2013's Best Summer Reads. It was one of two finalists for The Hemingway Foundation /PEN Award, as well as a finalist for the Chautauqua Prize, the John Gardner Short Story Award, the Foreword Review Prize, USABookNews.com Best Books and was on the longlist for the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Prize. It has been listed as one of the best books of 2012 by The New Yorker, The Kansas City Star, and other publications.
Watts's work chronicles the lives of young African Americans who come from, or live near, the "dark houses out on tangled dirt roads on the fringes of the county." Her stories draw on her experiences in fast food and factory jobs, and as a Jehovah's Witness minister, to explore themes of loss, faith, and hope, giving voices to communities usually unheard.
|Jeong Han Yun and Choon Hyang Yun - Installation in Paper|
|Husband and wife team Jeong Yun and Choon Yun have spent the past 20-years perfecting a technique for transforming paper into contemporary masterpieces that move the eye across a textural landscape that seems to replicate the rhythms of nature. The artist pair use ancient paper making traditions in the creation of their works -- large scale canvases, some with energetic movements of color and texture, and others with a whimsical pop-culture reference.|
Time: 12pm - 4pm Location: Payne Gallery, Hurd Campus
