Reminder: Lewis Nordan Symposium Coming Up on Friday, January 23

Just a reminder:

The CMDCAH Symposium on the life and work of Alabama writer Lewis "Buddy" Nordan will be held on Friday, January 23, at the Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center.

Nordan himself will deliver the keynote address, "Don't Cry for Me, Itta Bena," at 7 PM on Friday evening. He will be introduced by writer Clyde Edgerton, who will also sing his rendition of Nordan's "Sugar Among the Chickens."

This year, the Symposium will also be available as a live Webcast. Online attendees can see and hear the presentations in real time and ask questions of the speakers via a chat window. (This system is optimized for PC users; Mac users may experience difficulties.)

Log in to the Nordan Symposium "conference room" as a guest.

The Symposium is free and open to the public. For more information, see the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities' Symposium page.

This looks like something I won't want to miss. If I can't drive over to watch it, which is probable, I'll tune in here.
