Two Events with Dolen Perkins-Valdez

Former Puget Sound English Department member Dolen Perkins-Valdez will be back on campus on Monday, February 28, to offer two events:

11 a.m., in the Rotunda, “The Practice (Of the Writing Life)”

3 p.m., Wyatt 326, “The Slings and Arrows of the Publishing World”

Both events are free and open to members of the campus community. For further information, please contact Beverly Conner: bconner@pugetsound.edu

You can find further information about Perkins-Valdez, and about her acclaimed debut novel Wench at her website. Wench (Amistad, $14.99) deals with an unfamiliar aspect of American history: a resort where wealthy white men once vacationed with their slave mistresses.
