June 25, 2011

For Starkville Daily News
On June 29 at 10:30 a.m. at the Starkville Public Library, Starkville Reads will present an interactive discussion of Willa Cather’s popular novel “My Antonia” led by Dr. Noel Polk, Professor Emeritus of English at Mississippi State University and editor of “The Mississippi Quarterly.”
Dr. Polk is a widely known scholar of the works of William Faulkner and Eudora Welty and has lectured in various locations throughout the world. 
A native Mississippian, he has taught in Mississippi universities throughout most of his career. His books include “Children of the Dark House: Text and Context in Faulkner,” “Eudora Welty: A Bibliography,” and “Faulkner and Welty and the Southern Literary Tradition.” 
He has taught Cather’s “My Antonia” for many years and brings a wealth of knowledge about the novel to the discussion. 
Those attending the program are invited to ask questions or offer comments about the novel or the author.
Starkville Reads has donated numerous copies of the novel to the Starkville Public Library so that those interested can check out a copy. It is also available for purchase at the Book Mart and Barnes & Noble. The program is open to the public free of charge, and light refreshments will be served.
Starkville Reads is grateful to the City of Starkville, the Starkville Rotary Club, and the Starkville Area Arts Council for generous grants as well as to individuals who have made donations that allow the organization both to supply books to various venues in the community and to provide numerous programs at no charge. Those wishing to make tax-deductible contributions may mail them to Starkville Reads, P.O.
