Join us for an exciting author talk!

Author Talk: Dr. Vivian Wagner
Thursday, March 19th @ 3:30 PM in Library

Muskingum College Library welcomes Vivian Wagner, to discuss her book “Fiddle: One Woman’s Search for Tunes, Grit, and Authenticity.”

Vivian Wagner is an assistant professor of journalism and director of the journalism program at Muskingum College. She'll be reading from her forthcoming book, FIDDLE: ONE WOMAN'S SEARCH FOR TUNES, GRIT, and AUTHENTICITY (Citadel Press/Kensington 2010). The book traces her personal journey in learning to play the fiddle, from the backwoods of Tennessee to the bayous of Louisiana. Trained as a classical violinist, Wagner finds that fiddling has something to teach her about creativity, improvisation, and survival.

Wagner received her Ph.D. in English, specializing in American literature and popular culture, from the University of Illinois in 1996, and she has taught at Muskingum College since 2003. Her articles and essays have appeared in many magazines and literary journals, including American Profile, Bluegrass Unlimited, Relish, The Pinch, The Battered Suitcase, The Kenyon Review Online, Toasted Cheese, and Vegetarian Times. She has received fellowships to the Kenyon Review Writers Workshop and the RopeWalk Writers Retreat, and one of her essays was shortlisted in Best American Essays 2007.
