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.

    Remembering Barry: Hannah, 67, dies Monday

    To the world he was an author but for many in Oxford he was something more: friend and teacher, a fisherman and a dad. Writer Barry Hannah died on Monday afternoon of natural causes, according to the Lafayette County coroner, at his home in Oxford. It was just weeks shy of his 68th birthday and days before his work and life were to be honored at the 17th annual Oxford Conference on the Book.

          Hannah helped shape many of us as writers

          I was going through a major life change a few years ago and wanted to find my way back to writing. I decided to enroll in Barry Hannah’s creative writing course thinking it would be fun. Boy was I ever wrong. Instead it was the most grueling and painful experience of my life and one that has forever changed who I am.
          Hannah wasn’t my favorite teacher because he was nice. He was a tough cookie with his students but anyone who ever had the joy of getting to experience it knows that they are forever a better writer because of him.
