Tom Pribek will continue the English Department's William J. and Yvonne Hyde Colloquium Series with a presentation entitled "Reading from the Realms of Gold." Even after the private reading of printed literature became common (and affordable), 19th-century audiences continued a love of reading and reciting out loud. This presentation will describe oral literature in America to the end of the century, illustrated by display of popular anthologies containing material for public reading and elocution manuals. The presentation runs from 2:30-3:30 p.m. on Friday, November 12th, in 113 Wimberly Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
