Word2: Writer to Writer 2015-16 Events

Last year, the second year of our collaboration with Literati Bookstore and WCBN, saw unprecedented audience numbers for interviews with Phoebe Gloeckner and Bruce Conforth This year, we’re hoping to welcome even more U-M and Ann Arbor community members into the series, as Literati’s upstairs café has created plenty of space, with delicious coffee and tea!

March 22nd, 2016, 6-7pm at Literati Bookstore and Live on WCBN: Professor Robin Queen, of U-M’s Department of Linguistics joins us as our winter guest. Her research lies at the intersections of language contact, language variation and sociocultural landscapes. She is increasingly curious about the place of cognition for these intersections. Her book Vox Popular: The Surprising Life of Language in the Media has recently been published with Wiley Blackwell.

We’ll be talking with Professor Queen about how she approaches writing, how she teaches writing in the classrooms, and her hopes and dreams for her students’ work. We hope you will join us at Literati, or via WCBN’s live streaming.

Audio recordings of previous Writer to Writer events are available on our website.
