American Women Writers Study Group to Host a Discussion of Hannah Crafts' The Bondswoman's Narrative at Villanova University


An Announcement from the American Women Writers Study Group:

Dr. Travis Foster and Dr. Jean Lutes have arranged a discussion of Hannah Crafts’ The Bondwoman's Narrative at Villanova on Saturday April 11, 2015. Discussion will be facilitated by Faith Barrett and Brigitte Fielder, and meeting space, lunch, and coffee will be provided courtesy of Villanova's English department and the programs of Africana Studies and Gender and Women's Studies.

Attendees should meet in the East Lounge of Dougherty Hall for lunch at noon. Discussion will run from approximately 12:30 – 4:30 with a coffee break at about 3 pm.

Additionally, for the benefit of those coming in from out of town, as well as for any interested students, the coordinators of the event have made 7:00 p.m. dinner reservations at Han Dynasty in Old City (http://handynasty.net/oldcity/). If you would like to attend, please take a minute to look over the menu, then let Travis know (1) that you would like to attend, (2) whether you have dietary restrictions, (3) what spice level you prefer on a 1 – 10 scale, and (4) if any dishes look particularly enticing (we can express preferences). We’ll be doing a $25/person prix fixe meal plus any drinks, and we’ll be split over two to three tables depending on how many attend.

Finally, the coordinators of the event are looking for interest in meeting Friday at The Library Company around 3:00 p.m. for a tour of their new exhibition, The Genius of Freedom: Northern Black Activism and Uplift after the Civil War (http://www.librarycompany.org/collections/exhibits/index.htm). If so, please email Travis.

For further questions, please email Dr. Lutes at jean.lutes@villanova.edu or Dr. Foster at travis.foster@villanova.edu.
