Library Series Features Decatur Scholar

The “University in the Library” series, a Georgia Center for the Book program which presents acclaimed scholars discussing the lives and work of some of the world’s finest writers, welcomes Decatur’s own Dr. Pearl McHaney – who has written extensively on Eudora Welty and other Southern authors – to present a lecture on Tennessee Williams.

This year is the 100th birthday of Williams’ birth, and the program examines his colorful, controversial life and looks at some of his major works including “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” “A Streetcar Named Desire” and “The Glass Menagerie,” all classics of the american theater.

The program will be held Thursday, April 7 at the Decatur Library Auditorium, 215 Sycamore Street and begins at 7:15.  It is free and I can attest that Dr. McHaney is entertaining, enlightening and a lot of fun!
