Columbia, SC: University of South Carolina, 1984. First Printing. Single Sheet. A poster (11"x17") presenting the 1984 Writers Series of lectures at the University of South Carolina, sponsored by the University's Department of English & College of Humanities & Social Sciences. The event took place during March & April of that year, & among those who delivered lectures at this event were the great Russian-born poet Joseph Brodsky (1940-1996), who resided & taught at the University of Michigan through much of the 1970s; popular & controversial novelist Erica Jong; Garrison Keillor of Prairie Home Companion fame; & Diane Wakoski, the acclaimed poet who has long resided in Michigan. Also participating in this event were poets Robert Fitzgerald (1910-1985) & Galway Kinnell (1927-2014), & novelist Tim O'Brien. With reproductions of photographs of all seven participants next to the date & location of their lecture. A bold production & a rare relic of a gathering of great literary & cultural figures that can never again be re-assembled. In very fine condition with only one light horizontal crease at middle where originally folded in half; very faint horizontal waves throughout surface. Currently mounted on stiff board, in protective shrinkwrap. Will be shipped carefully re-folded as originally issued. Very Fine. [Item #2684]
