Starving, Hysterical, Naked: Allen Ginsberg’s Howl

It would be hard to find a poem that has changed American culture to the extent that Allen Ginsberg’s great rant of a poem Howl did when it was published in 1956. It tore the cover off the placid media image of America, drawing attention to all those who did not fit into the supposed mainstream of American life. it offered a wild denunciation of the world Ginsberg found himself in as well as a spiritual vision of a more compassionate America.

This beautifully written novel is about two half-sisters and a bigamist father who tries to keep both families from connecting in 1980s Atlanta. The first half of the novel is told through the eyes of one half-sister and the second half is told through the eyes of the other half-sifter. Come join us for a lively discussion about parent and teenage relations, the meaning of family and especially about some very good writing. Jones’ novel was selected as Peoria Reads’ One Book One City novel for 2017.

A Life Worth Writing: An Exploration of the Rhetorical Traditions and Relativity of Truth in 21st Century Memoirs

By examining ground-breaking memoirs of the 21st century, this Between the Lines seminar will look at “What makes a story worth telling?”. By looking at renown authors use of “trigger words/situations”, implications of truth, against the “norm” behaviors and their rhetorical or persuasive structure; one can be able to understand why we love to read a memoir. Their reliability and unique structures make them a literary genre anyone can partake in and also a valuable real world read. This session will draw on specific memoirs including but not limited to The Liars’ Club by Mary Karr, When You’re Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris and Loitering by Charles D’Ambrosia.
