Description

Morton L. Mandel Public Lecture featuring Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Proulx, in conversation with author and UW Professor of English Shawn Wong.

Working on an essay about peatlands took author Annie Proulx down unexpected side alleys.  She found 140-year-old marginal notations repeatedly accusing Alfred Lord Tennyson of plagiarism, butterfly collectors who could not stop, photographs of American Southern swampland by a Department of the Interior biologist who saw aspects of the natural world that no longer exist, and more.  The American Academy and the University of Washington's Department of English invite you to join us for a conversation with Annie Proulx and Shawn Wong about the strange corners writing research leads one into, and what can be discovered there.  Reception to follow.
