Joseph Thomas, the Director of SDSU's National Center for the Study of Literature, interrupts your regularly scheduled web surfing for this important message:
Great news! Noted poet, musician, scholar, & Words with Friends player Michael Heyman has confirmed that he will journey from the snurfish lerds of Boston to the ersatz shores of San Diego to give a public lecture on Lewis Carroll this spring (2015) for SDSU's National Center for the Study of Children's Literature! Evidently the Alice books are turning, like, twenty nine or something, so Carroll fever is spreading like a kinder, gentler Ebola virus across the Southland.
Lecture date to be announced!
Michael Heyman will join the malfuscant ranks of poets and scholars like Yetta Howard,Charles Hatfield, Kate Capshaw, Richard Flynn, Kenneth Kidd (did he end up doing one? I can't remember--he did something, tho), & many others ... ** O frabjuous play! O merciless lay! Let ring your horns, let blare your rings! Spring's a coming! Spring's a coming! And so's that Heyman kid!
**For example, Marah Gubar gave a fantastic NCSCL sponsored talk a few years ago, as did poet, scholar, librarian, and writer of Eldritch fictions Michael Joseph. The brilliant Leonard S. Marcus is also among this esteemed crew; as are Pamela Ryan, Gene Luen Yang, Gary Soto, and a slew of others!**
