The English Department is excited to present Leonard Pitts, Jr., Pulitzer Prize-winning author and nationally syndicated columnist as our third annual Walter Visiting Writer.
Over the span of 35 years, Mr. Pitts has been a columnist, a college professor, a radio producer, and a lecturer. But the word he most defines himself by is “writer.” As the author of one of the most popular newspaper columns in the country he has been called “insightful” and “inspiring”; as the author of a series of critically-acclaimed books, including in his latest novel Freeman, he has touched on issues central to American identity. Awarded and recognized for his work in the fields of journalism and letters over 21 times, Mr. Pitts brings his unique perspective to Jacksonville University with his talk, “Hating Our Guts: The Search for Truth in an Alt Real World.”
Please join us for an absorbing evening at Terry Concert Hall on Wednesday, April 3, 2019. There will be a social hour with light hors d'oeuvres at 6:00 p.m., and Mr. Pitts will give a talk with Q & A beginning at 6:45 p.m., to be followed by a reception at 7:30 p.m.. This event is co-sponsored by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
Please RSVP to email@example.com by March 29. We look forward to seeing you there!
