Irish Catholic Southerners:
Becoming American: A Literary Oddyssey
Bryan Giemza

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Have you ever read The Awakening? Or heard of Kate Chopin?
Are you familiar with Uncle Remus? Have you seen “Gone With
the Wind”? Or, more recently, have you seen “No Country for
Old Men”? What all of these things have in common is a
connection to Irish Catholic writers from the American South.
This interactive lecture will offer the audience an engaging
account of writers who invented a regional mythos by setting
them in context of their times and literary work. Derived from
the award-winning book, Irish Catholic Writers and the Invention
of the American South (LSU Press, 2013), the presentation
investigates the remarkable literary legacy of Irish-American
southern writers. Their story is one of courage and enduring
creativity.
