Dorothy Allison

Award-winning author Dorothy Allison will visit RU on Monday, March 2, for a public reading of her work.

Allison arrived on the literary scene with her novel "Bastard Out of Carolina," an affecting story of surviving abuse. In addition to her following works, she has gone on to become a foremost voice in issues of abuse, gender, sexuality and feminism.

The reading will take place at 5 p.m. in McGuffey 203. All are welcome.

Allison's visit is sponsored by the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning, Club Programming Committee, Gay-Straight Alliance, McConnell Library, the Office of the Provost, the Scholar-Citizen Initiative and the Women’s Studies Club.

Allison's visit is part of the RU's recognition of Women's History Month in March. The reading will help to kick off a month-long celebration of the accomplishments of women, both around the world and throughout history, and here on campus.

A schedule of events for Women's History Month can be found online.
