Author Talk this Thursday, April 20 at 3:30 p.m.

Please plan on attending the last Author Talk of the academic year on Thursday, April 20 at 3:30 p.m. in the Library. Associate Professor of English Dr. Andre' DeCuir and Associate Professor of Philosophy Dr. Todd Lekan will be speaking about their writing experiences.

Dr. DeCuir will discuss two plays he has written. Vecchio's Last Painting was submitted to a contest for one-acts for teen actors. Heirlooms was written for a contest in which the plays could be no longer than a page and are performed in an airport.

Dr. Lekan is the author of Making Morality : Pragmatist Reconstruction in Ethical Theory, published in 2003. "Drawing on the work of John Dewey, Lekan asserts that moral norms are neither timeless truths nor subjective whims, but habits transmitted through practices," from an unattributed review.

There will be time to ask each author questions and refreshments will be served.
