The theme of this reading is Exploring Facets of Truth.
On the surface the word “truth” conjures up the ideal of concrete facts based on evidence of happenings or artifacts any individual could reference. Authors Megan Powers, Jennifer Chaussee and David Karimi explore truth’s less concrete nature in their essays, published in the 2009-2010 edition of Prized Writing. In Lady in the Dunes, Jennifer Chaussee pieces together the mysteries of her grandmother’s past. David Karimi demonstrates how truth can be explored through the Socratic method in Emma. Megan Baer explores how artistic renditions of historical events shape audience’s perspectives in Charlie Wilson’s War: Cavalier, Facile or Politically Relevant?
UC Davis’ Writing Program invites the public and members of the press to join these authors as they share and discuss their work. Throughout the afternoon ambient melodies on the flute will be played by Janaye Pierce. Refreshments will be served.
