Corrington Award 2008 to Alice McDermott at Centenary, Shreveport

This time last year, Centenary hosted Yusef Komunyakaa, a weathered American poet with a booming low voice. I was memorized by his account of Vietnam, and I'll post an audio clip soon. Komunyakaa received the 2007 Corrington Award for Literary Excellence.

Tomorrow, April 7th, the 2008 Corrington Award will go to Alice McDermott, author of
Child of Heart. This event starts at 7pm sharp in Kilpatrick Auditorium, located in the Smith building. For more information email Jennifer Strage at jstrange@centenary.edu.
