Stanford Lane Lectures, 2009- 2010

Here’s the list of Distinguished Authors visiting Stanford for the 2009- 2010 Lane Lecture Series (now in its 28th year, says the brochure —  which means it was still fairly new when self started at the Creative Writing Program, self had absolutely no idea).  All readings are free and open to the public.

  • First up, Joyce Carol Oates (author of fifty-plus books, blah blah blah.  Self wants to go hear her, just because):  Monday, Nov. 2, 2009, 8 p.m., Cubberley Auditorium
  • Denis Johnson comes next (Self is absolutely bowled over when she reads in the biographical notes that he was raised in Manila, among other places.  Self was also unaware, until now, that he is the current “resident playwright” for Intersection for the Arts).  He reads Monday, February 1, 2010, 8 p.m., Cubberley Auditorium.
  • Last, poet Edward Hirsch, winner of: the Guggenheim, the MacArthur, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and everything else (though not, interestingly, the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, or maybe that was left out inadvertently?)  There is a New Republic blurb:  “He can become Rimbaud, Rilke, Paul Klee, or Matisse, in each case convincingly.”  WOW!!!  He reads Monday, April 26, 2010, at the Stanford Humanities Center.

Stay tuned.
