"Whose Song? And Other Stories." Thomas Glave, assistant professor of English at the State University of New York-Binghamton, will present readings and a brief discussion from his first collection of short stories. The presentation, part of the UIC department of African-American studies' Spring Lecture Series 2001, is cosponsored by the UIC department of English.

"Glave's literary debut shows that he is a talented young writer," said Darnell Hawkins, professor and head of African-American studies. "Each of the nine stories in this collection reveals yet another of his successful technical experiments."


Monday, March 26

In Glave's short stories, there are threads of African-American and homosexual experiences, as well as Caribbean-American culture and history that connect the nine stories taking place in various locations around the world.

"Glave has been published and praised in many literary journals. Additionally, he has received many awards for his work, among them the prestigious O. Henry Prize," said Hawkins. "We are honored to have him as a part of our spring lecture series."
