Frostburg State University’s Center for Creative Writing presents a reading by author Brenda Flanagan on Wednesday, Nov. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Lane University Center room 142.
Flanagan is the author of “You Alone Are Dancing” and the recently released collection of stories “In Praise of Island Women.” She was born in Trinidad and incorporates the island imagery into her work. She focuses on the realization that geography and landscapes can change, but the drama of people’s lives remains a constant. Her works are penetrated with the bittersweet energy of hope in the face of disappointment, corruption and heartache.
This reading is free and open to the public. The FSU Office of Student and Community Involvement will sponsor a book signing and reception following the reading. For more information, contact the FSU Department of English at 301-687-4221 or the FSU Center for Creative Writing at 301-687-4024.
