As the presidential election season heats up, join us for a close look at what is perhaps the best American novel about politics:
Saturday, October 20, 2007
1pm - 8:30 pm
USM, Portland Campus
$50/Person (includes book, background materials, parking, reception, and dinner)
CEUs will be available for teachers.
This half-day program offers presentations by scholars on such topics as political demagoguery, Warren's literary techniques, and the two film versions of the novel-the classic 1949 Broderick Crawford and the recent Sean Penn remake. It will also include small-group discussions.
The day will conclude with a reception (including cash bourbon-tasting bar) and a mouthwatering Southern dinner on the top floor of USM's Glickman Library, with its panoramic view of the Portland peninsula.
Join us for a fun and stimulating afternoon and evening. Bring your friends; bring your book group!
A copy of the book will be mailed to you upon receipt of your registration.
Call 207 773-5051 with questions.
