IWP Writers Confront Evil In Nov. 2 IWP Panel
A panel of writers in residence at the University of Iowa International Writing Program will consider "Literature of Evil" at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2 in Meeting Room A in the Iowa City Public Library.
Considering whether words can deal with "the horror of it all" will be Antonio Ungar from Colombia, Yvonne Owour Adhiambo from Tanzania, Said El Haji from The Netherlands and John Mateer from Australia.
Biographies of the writers are accessible at www.uiowa.edu/~iwp/WRIT/WRITmain.html.
Through the IWP 36 writers from 29 countries have been members of the UI community since late August.
The IWP is staffed and housed by the UI. IWP writers are financed through bilateral agreements with numerous countries; by grants given by cultural institutions and governments abroad; and by private funds that are donated by a variety of American corporations, foundations and individuals. The activities of the IWP are assisted financially by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State under the authority of the Fulbright-Hays Act of 1961, as amended.
