Reflections on Life Writing From Scholar and Memoirist G. Thomas Couser

The Department of English presents Reflections on Life Writing from Scholar and Memoirist G. Thomas Couser, Professor Emeritus of English, Hofstra University. G. Thomas Couser will discuss the process of writing Letter to My Father: A Memoir, and read from the book at the 11:10 a.m. lecture. “In this engrossing and deeply-felt memoir, Couser's quest to understand and imagine his father's life gives the reader an affecting story of reclamation. Part biography, part detective story, this book attests to the emotional and literary power of a son’s love.” -- Sharon O’Brien, memoirist and Willa Cather biographer. At 2:20 p.m., G. Thomas Couser will discuss the proliferation of the disability memoir around the turn of the 21st century, its significance, and ethical dilemmas inherent in it.
