» Lecture: Novelist Jorge Amado: A Brazilian National Treasure


Wednesday, October 10
Distinguised Faculty Lecture: Novelist Jorge Amado: A Brazilian National Treasure With Keith Brower
Holloway Hall, Great Hall, 7 p.m.
Jorge Amado (1912-2001) stands as Brazils most famous and most popular novelist. He is, for many, the face of Brazilian literature, particularly internationally. His works are not without controversy, however, and for all his fame, and that of his works, many would suggest that he is not and some might say, by any stretch Brazil's best novelist. Brower, professor of modern languages and intercultural studies at SU, discusses Amados career and works, and addresses the authors place in Brazilian literature and culture.
