Languages and literature professor turns up on C-Span

November 26, 2001

A broadcast of highlights from the Southern Book Festival, held last month in Nashville, has brought some unexpected attention to the University.

Barry Kitterman, associate professor in languages and literature, was invited to introduce Garrison Keillor, author of the book and NPR radio series "Lake Woebegone," to festival attendees. And according to Admissions Director Charles McCorkle, who happened to be watching, he did a marvelous job.

"He represented the University well," McCorkle says. And the publicity can't hurt, he adds. "We received a good public relations boost when his name, title, and place of employment were shown on the screen as he was talking."
