For the Kylene and Bradley Beers Lecture, award-winning novelist Jesmyn Ward, an associate professor of English at Tulane, will speak about her book, Men We Reaped, this year’s Tulane Reading Project selection. Men We Reaped is Ward’s critically acclaimed memoir, in which she examines the lives and untimely deaths of five young men she was close to, including her brother. Her own story provides a poignant counterpoint: a private school education funded by her mother’s employer eventually led her to Stanford, two graduate degrees and literary acclaim. Yet she remains haunted by the memory of these men, and by the role that poverty and racism played in their fates. Ward is the 2011 National Book Award winner for her novel Salvage the Bones, and the recipient of the first Paul and Debra Gibbons Professorship in the Tulane Department of English. The lecture is free and open to the public, with a book signing to follow. First-year Tulane students are invited to RSVP for “Discussion Dinners,” that will take place immediately after the lecture.
