The Lee University Department of Language and Literature recently hosted best-selling novelist Robert Morgan as a guest in the 2018 Writer’s Festival. 

Morgan presented a reading from his novel “Chasing the North Star,” which won the Southern Book Award for Historical Fiction in 2017. Following the reading, a Q&A session took place with those in attendance, and the evening concluded with a book signing. 

“We are so grateful that Robert Morgan was with us for the festival,” said Dr. William Woolfitt, assistant professor of creative writing at Lee. “His novels, which are richly influenced by the Pentecostal and Baptist churches he attended as a boy, remind us that stories have the power to deepen our faith and our empathy.” 

Morgan has written numerous novels, biographies, and collections of poetry. In addition to selling over 2 million copies, his novel “Gap Creek” was an Oprah’s Book Club selection, a New York Times best-seller, and the Appalachian Writers Association’s Book of the Year. more

Lee University English Students Attend Tennessee Williams’ Play, Tour   Dr. Andrew Lee, professor of English, and Dr. Donna Summerlin, assistant chair of the Lee University Department of Language and Literature, recently took students from Lee’s Theories of Reading and Writing class to Tennessee Williams’ play “The Glass Menagerie” at the Chattanooga Theatre Center.   “I’m so thankful for this opportunity and the ability to experience it with peers who have the same appreciation for the work and for literature in general,” said English major Abigail Cribbs. “I believe this trip has helped me to gain a deeper understanding of the emotions of the characters and the context in which Tennessee Williams may have been writing this play.”   The students also traveled to the University of the South in Sewanee, where they received a private tour of the Tennessee Williams’ archives. Students were able to see the playwright’s original type-written manuscripts of some of his other plays.   “The students were thrilled to be able to do hands-on research with primary source material for the first time,” said Lee. “The trip also helped students grow closer as a cohort in our English major degree program.”   After the archives tour, the group stayed at the Smokehouse Lodge on Monteagle.   “Overall, the trip was fantastic,” said English major Tylor Hudson. “It opened my mind up to interpret and theorize ‘The Glass Menagerie.’ I found fascinating information on Tennessee Williams himself and created friendships.”   For more information on Lee’s Department of Language of Literature, contact 423-614-8210.     Dr. Andrew Lee's English class stands outside the chapel at the University of the South during a recent research visit.
