Register in advance for this meeting:
Our next Zoom talk will celebrate our new literary guide with a narrative of the history of literature in Knoxville, ranging from the earliest eras, when we were printing newspapers and a few books here before Tennessee was even a state, through the eras of George Washington Harris, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Adolph Ochs, James Agee, Nikki Giovanni, Cormac McCarthy—and even murder-mystery writer Rick Yancey. Along the way, we’ll talk about some surprising connections to the likes of Carl Sandburg, Kurt Vonnegut, and Jean Paul Sartre, all of whom had memorable moments here.
