Check This Out: Don DeLillo


“Writing is a concentrated form of thinking…a young writer sees that with words he can place himself more clearly into the world,” author Don DeLillo noted about his craft. “Words on a page, that’s all it takes to help him separate himself from the forces around him, streets and people and pressures and feelings. He learns to think about these things, to ride his own sentences into new perceptions.”

DeLillo will provide the annual Joel A. Conarroe Lecture in spring 2014, in the Duke Family Performance Hall. The talk will be free and open to the public.
