Theresa Williams, novelist and Lecturer in Creative Writing/Literature, will give her Colloquia series talk entitled “The Story of the Velvet Elvis, a.k.a. The Story Written Late at Night in the Family Bathtub” today, February 10, from 11:00 am-12:30 pm in East Hall 206.

Theresa also has a story out in the new Sun Magazine anthology The Mysterious Life of the Heart this month. Sy Safransky editor and publisher of the magazine writes in the introduction:

This isn’t a book in which you’ll find the seven steps to connubial bliss, with exercises at the end of each chapter to simultaneously tighten your buttocks and open your third eye. But that doesn’t mean the stories, essays, and poems are randomly arranged. Instead, we follow a winding, sometimes treacherous path from the innocence and impetuousness of young love through marriage and devotion, temptation and betrayal, divorce and heartbreak, and finally forgiveness and mercy. When read from front to back, The Mysterious Life of the Heart is a journey worth taking.
