Visiting Writer to Lecture at AASU

SAVANNAH, GA–In an ongoing effort to expose students to outstanding writers and scholars, the Department of Languages, Literature, and Philosophy at Armstrong Atlantic State University will present novelist Jeanne Braselton on October 31. Braselton's lecture will be given as part of the university's annual Visiting Writers Series. Her talk will begin at 12:15 P.M. in room 157 of AASU's University Hall. It is free and open to the public.

Jeanne Braselton's debut novel, A False Sense of Well Being (Ballantine Books), is a darkly comic story about the gradual heartbreak of loneliness in a marriage, the need to reconnect again with memory and love, and the desperate--even reckless--things people do to give their lives passion and meaning. Novelist Kaye Gibbons says that Braselton's work has "the wit and comedy of Nora Ephron and the literary force of Flannery O'Connor."
