You’re invited to MemoirFest, an all-day symposium on women writers and memoir. MemoirFest will feature presentations and panel discussions by Debra Gwartney, Crystal Williams, Lidia Yuknavitch, Lauren Kessler, Margarita Donnelly, Elizabeth Reis, and Dominick Vetri. Registered participants are invited to take part in roundtable discussions with the panelists on all aspects of memoir.
MemoirFest is free and open to the public, but spaces are limited. Secure your place at the table by registering with Peggy McConnell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MemoirFest is the inaugural project of the Women Writers Research Interest Group (RIG) at the Center for the Study of Women and Society at UO. The centerpiece will be an annual Women Writers Symposium exploring the work of contemporary women writers, with a focus on the Pacific Northwest, and featuring dynamic conversations with authors, scholars, editors, and publishers.
Sponsored by the UO Center for the Study of Women in Society, Women Writers RIG; the Oregon Humanities Center; School of Journalism and Communication; UO Libraries; and the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies.
A note about lunch: At the EMU across the street, several food venues are open on Saturday. Along 13th Avenue, a short walk from Gerlinger, many small restaurants are available. Or, you can bring your own.
