Bestselling Author and Kentucky Poet Laureate Silas House to Speak at LWC on Wednesday

 

Lindsey Wilson College will welcome national bestselling author and Kentucky Poet Laureate Silas House to campus for a lecture and talk on Wednesday, March 20. The talk, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 2:30 p.m. CT, and has been moved to V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street. A book signing will follow. 
 

Silas House is the New York Times bestselling author of eight widely acclaimed novels whose work frequently appears in The Atlantic and The New York Times. He is a former NPR commentator and has been published in journals and magazines such as TimeThe AdvocateOxford AmericanGarden & Gun, and many others. He is the 2023-24 Kentucky Poet Laureate and was honored with the Governor’s Award for the Arts in 2020. His most recent novel, "Lark Ascending," won the 2023 Southern Book Prize.

 

House, whose visit is made possible because of LWC’s Student Experience Enhancement Development initiative, will visit with two English classes – American Literature II and Writing and Culture. 

 

“We are honored to welcome Silas House to our campus on Wednesday,” said LWC Dean of Arts & Humanities and Associate Professor of English and Women's & Gender Studies Allison Smith. “For us, Professor House is the ideal speaker. More than 80% of our undergraduates are first-generation college students from Kentucky. House is from Appalachia and can relate personally with our students and their experiences. Furthermore, he brings an interdisciplinary approach to his work, serving as a poet, author, speaker, and playwright.”

 

House is a native of Whitley County, KY and will speak on faith, activism, writing, and his experiences growing up in Appalachia. House currently lives in Lexington, KY.

 

The talk will be live-streamed on LWC’s YouTube account. It can be accessed shortly before the event begins by going to https://www.youtube.com/lwcpublicrelations. A link will also be provided on LWC’s homepage at www.lindsey.edu and on the college’s Facebook account.
