Oxford

Conference for the Book will go on

The 17th annual Oxford Conference for the Book, set to begin on Thursday, was planned to be dedicated to Barry Hannah and to include several talks planned with the author. Ann Abadie, associate director of the Center for the Study of Southern Culture and organizer of the conference, said that the conference will go on as planned with some changes expected. The Saturday afternoon block of panels are dedicated to Hannah — as a teacher, as a writer, and on how to teach his works.
