Though her Feb. 17 evening lecture has already sold out, fans of Jamaica Kincaid will still have the opportunity to see her speak. The author will be participating in an early afternoon conversation with Sherril Jaffe, professor of English, presented by the Writers at Sonoma series.
This free event is open to the public, and takes place Thursday, Feb. 17 from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. in Schulz 3001.
As the Andrea Neves and Barton Evans lecturer on social justice, Kincaid is presenting her lecture "In A Small Place: Reading and Writing" at 7 p.m. on February 17, in the Green Music Center. That lecture is currently sold-out.
Kincaid is best known for the novels Annie John, Lucy, and The Autobiography of My Mother. Born in Antigua, Kincaid has written throughout her life on colonialism and exploitation, familial relations, Caribbean culture, race, power and social injustice.
A Visiting Professor at Harvard University in 2009, she now teaches at Claremont McKenna College.
This Writers at Sonoma event is made possible through generous funding from SSU's Instructionally Related Activities.
