The West Virginia Humanities Council invites you to "An Evening with Joyce Carol Oates," as the American literary icon delivers the 2007 Betsy K. McCreight Lecture in the Humanities. The event is free and open to everyone.

It will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 18 in the Geary Auditorium of Riggleman Hall on the campus of the University of Charleston. Ms. Oates will share her experiences and read from her work. A public reception will follow the program and Ms. Oates will sign copies of her books.

Ms. Oates is an author of fiction and non-fiction as well as a publisher, playwright, poet, reviewer and teacher who has influenced the literary landscape in this country for four decades. She has helped many emerging authors through the years, including West Virginia's own Breece Pancake and Pinckney Benedict, by bringing their work to the attention of a wider audience. She is the Roger S. Berlind Distinguished Professor of the Humanities at Princeton University.
