Panel Discussion: Lawrence Durrell Centennial

Monday, February 27, 2012 7:00PM

College of Information Technology Auditorium, Rm 1004

Sponsored by Zach S. Henderson Library

Best-known for his “The Alexandria Quartet,” Lawrence Durrell remains one of the most enigmatic writers of the twentieth century.  A bohemian in Paris with Henry Miller and Anais Nin in the 1930’s.  Durrell worked with the British Foreign Service after World War II.  He found himself in a range of locations from Alexandria to Argentina, including the bitter war on Cyprus in the 1950’s.  From these experiences, he wrote gritty and cryptic novels with intensely primal scenes, books that continue to surprise and challenge in the twenty-first century.”

Moderator:  Lisa Costello
Panelists:  James R. Nichols, Joe Pellegrino, and Robert Batchelor
