The Humanities Center is proud to present as a part of its Brown Bag Series, a talk by Bill Harris, English, Professor Emeritus.

ABSTRACT:

In the twenty-five linked short stories in his collection, I Got to Keep Moving, celebrated Detroit author Bill Harris vividly and deftly describes the inner and outer lives of a wide cast of characters as they navigate changing circumstances in the southern United States, pre- and post-Civil War. Addressing vital aspects of life—hope, family, violence, movement, and memory—I Got to Keep Moving is as mesmerizing as it is revealing.

These talks are free and open to the public! We also provide free coffee, tea, and cake!
