“Tell Me a Riddle” and “I Stand Here Ironing” by Tillie Olsen

May 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

featuring Emily Katz, Teaching Assistant Professor of American Studies

Winner of the O. Henry Award

“An excellent volume that will appeal to anyone interested in women’s studies, social justice, journalism, and American short stories and fiction.”— Library Journal

“In these stories, as in all of her work, Olsen set a new standard for the treatment of women and the poor and for the depiction of their lives and circumstances. In her hands, the hard truths about motherhood and marriage, domestic life, labor, and political conviction found expression in language of such poetic intensity and depth that their influence continues to be felt today.”—Nebraska Press

Meeting Dates: Wednesday, May 1
