  • William Styron's Robert Penn Warren Lecture on Southern Letters Rescheduled

    The renowned Southern novelist William Styron will deliver the third annual Robert Penn Warren Lecture on Southern Letters on April 5, following a dinner at the Sheraton Nashville, 623 Union Street. His talk, which was originally scheduled to take place in October during the Tennessee Humanities Council's Southern Festival of Books, has been rescheduled due to illness.
    Styron is best known for a series of novels that includes Lie Down in Darkness, which won the American Academy of Arts and Letters' Prix de Rome; The Confessions of Nat Turner, which won the Pulitzer Prize; and Sophie's Choice, which was awarded the National Book Award. Styron also received the National Medal of Arts. His most recent work is A Tidewater Morning (1993).
    The Robert Penn Warren Lecture on Southern Letters was founded in 1998 as a collaborative project between the Warren Center and the Tennessee Humanities Council. It is intended to provide a public forum for the exploration of topics related to Southern writing. Previous lecturers have included Elizabeth Spencer and Reynolds Price. For tickets and further information regarding the lecture, please contact the Tennessee Humanities Council at (615) 320-7001 or Letters Archive Index
