Lorrie Moore, Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Chair in English
In 2012, contemporary American author Lorrie Moore captured the hearts and imaginations of a standing room only Chancellor’s Lecture Series audience as she shared her witty observations on everyday life.
It proved to be a fateful visit for Moore … and for Vanderbilt. After many years as a professor of creative writing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Moore made the move to Nashville and is now Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Chair of English. The Chancellor’s Lecture Series is pleased to host Professor Moore once again – this time as a Vanderbilt faculty presenter.
Prepare to be amused and moved as Moore reads from her latest book Bark Stories and engages us with her delightful commentary as the Stories Bark on the "public and private absurdities of American life, dramatic irony, and enduring half-cracked love."
Parking is available in Terrace Place Garage near the intersection of 21st Avenue North and Terrace Place
The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-seated basis.
