Quote of the Week:   If "A" is success in life, then "A" equals "x" plus "y" plus "z". Work is "x"; "y" is play; and "z" is keeping your mouth shut. ~ Albert Einstein

Fan Mayhall Gates Literary Reading by Sandra Scofield
Fan Mayhall Gates Literary Reading by Sandra Scofield Art Center Gallery, Seattle Pacific University Tuesday, February 1, 7:30 p.m. On February 1, novelist Sandra Scofield will give the Fan Mayhall Gates Literary Reading here at SPU in the Art Center Gallery. In her fiction Scofield not only revels in richly sensuous foreground details but also conveys the larger historical and cultural settings in which the stories take place. Four of her seven novels are set in Texas, and the two novels set in Mexico have Texas characters living out of place. Still, she thinks of her work as a reflection of ordinary contemporary American life. Her characters are caught between "memory and desire"; yet, in the midst of that divine discontent, they enlarge our capacity for compassion and understanding. Her latest work is a memoir, Occasions of Sin (Norton, 2004), set in 1950s West Texas. Scofield says she "wrote down to the quick" to remember and to understand the complexities of her childhood. Scofield's first novel, Gringa, about a young Texas woman in Mexico, won a New American Writing Award; her second, Beyond Deserving, was a 1991 finalist for a National Book Award; A Chance to See Egypt, her most romantic novel, won a Best Fiction award from the Texas Institute of Letters in 1997. She received an NEA fellowship in 1991. Although writing has been her main occupation for twenty years, she has participated in outreach programs for Oregon Literary Arts and the National Book Foundation, and is a popular summer workshop leader. She is at work on a second memoir and a craft book. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 206.281.2988. Sponsored by the SPU English Department.
