Coastal's English faculty members to discuss literary topics

  Veronica Gerald  
Coastal Carolina University English Faculty will discuss literary works in the "Up for Discussion" series at the Myrtle Beach Art Museum this fall. The series is free and open to the public.

Featured speakers include:

* Wednesday, Sept. 24. Veronica Davis Gerald, an English professor at the University, will present "Who Dat Gullah" from 6 to 7:30 p.m., a discussion of frequently asked questions about the Gullah culture. Gerald is co-author of "The Ultimate Gullah Cookbook: A Taste of Food, History and Culture form the Gullah People" and is owner of an online arts and crafts shop, UltimateGullah.com.

* Tuesday, Oct. 14. Joe Oestreich, assistant professor of English at Coastal Carolina University, will read his essay, "The Low Season," which was published in The Cimarron Review, about a vacation he and his wife spent in Mexico financed by attending timeshare sales pitches. Discussion topics at the session may include how to turn life experiences into written work, how we define success and what life is like for people who make a living in the tourist industry. Oestrich, who joined the University faculty in 2008, is a creative nonfiction specialist whose essays have appeared in Esquire, Sports Illustrated and many other magazines and journals.

All "Up for Discussion" literary events are free and open to the public. The Art Museum is located at 3100 S. Ocean Blvd, next to Springmaid Pier in Myrtle Beach. Parking is free.

Space is limited so reservations are required. Call 843-238-2510.
