Professor Lewin Selected as Literary Judge

Jennifer Lewin has been selected as a judge for the Southern Literary Festival this year, which is being held at the University of Mississippi in March (www.southernliteraryfestival.com).  The Southern Literary Festival, according to its website, “has an illustrious history."  Robert Penn Warren, then a professor at LSU, was one of the founders. He spoke at the conference on a number of occasions, as did Eudora Welty, Katherine Anne Porter, and Flannery O’Connor, who won an award at SLF as an undergraduate and later headlined the conference.”
