Margaret McMullan Gives Special Lecture Wednesday

On Wednesday March 2, to begin the 23rd annual Oxford Conference for the Book, Margaret McMullan gives a special Brown Bag at 11 a.m. in the Faulkner Room in Archives and Special Collections at the J. D. Williams Library. McMullan is the author of seven award-winning novels, including her latest, “Aftermath Lounge.” In 2015, she and Phillip Lopate curated “Every Father’s Daughter,” an anthol­ogy of essays about fathers by great women writers such as Alice Munro, Ann Hood, and Jane Smiley.

During this special Brown Bag Lecture and opening session of the Oxford Conference for the Book, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, McMullan will read from her recent work and talk about books and authors and how they draw people together—as fam­ily, friends, and as a community.

McMullan has taught on the summer faculty at the Stony Brook Southampton Writers Conference in Southampton, New York, at the Eastern Kentucky University Low-Residency MFA Program, and at the University of Southern Indiana’s Summer and Winter Ropewalk Writers Retreat.
