Eula Biss Literary Event

Posted by Seattle University Alumni Association on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at 10:04 AM PDT

As many alumni may recall, each summer incoming undergraduates are assigned a book known as the Common Text. The selected book is read by students, faculty and staff and provides an opportunity for dialogue and reflection. This year, the Common Text was Notes from No Man’s Land by Eula Biss.  On October 10th, Seattle University students and alumni have the exciting opportunity to hear from Eula Biss as she visits Seattle University for a literary reading and Q & A session about her book.

Notes from No Man’s Land is a collection of essays that highlights many important and challenging conversations about race in the U.S., including issues of “passing,” eugenics, segregation, public education, state violence, fear, neocolonialism, intersectionality, class, media representation and more.  A sample essay from the book is available on reserve through SU’s library so that all members of the SU community may access it. We hope you’ll join us for this exciting opportunity.
