Events line up for the annual Faulkner Literary Fest, which begins in July and continues throughout the summer with events and activities focused on all things literature.
Dr Kate Stewart, Ph.D. will review one of Faulkner’s most obscure books, Knight’s Gambit, at the Union County Heritage Museum on Thursday, July 15 at noon. A light lunch will be offered to Museum Moments participants by the Museum Guild from 11:30 am. The event is free thanks to the museum’s community partners.
Stewart, a Faulkner scholar, is an English professor at the University of Arkansas at Monticello. The Cotton Plant native is a regular and highly regarded speaker at the festival in New Albany. Her presentations have a lot of depth and she also has a great sense of humor, said Jill Smith, director of the museum.
âWe are pleased to present Museum Moments and the Writing for Children workshop on July 29, 9 am to 5 pm, for $ 30, as part of the community’s annual focus on writing.
As the deadline for the annual completion of William Faulkner Writing (www.williamfaulknerliterarycompetition.com) approaches, there will be more opportunities to participate in related activities.
