VALDOSTA — Valdosta State University will present “Blood, Bone, and Marrow: An Evening on Southern Author Harry Crews” from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 13, in the Odum Library Auditorium.

Dr. David Buehrer, a professor in VSU’s Department of English, will moderate a discussion of Crews’s works.  

“Crews was one of South Georgia’s very own,” shared Dr. Myrto Drizou, an assistant professor in VSU’s Department of English. “Raised on a South Georgia tenant farm, he grew to be a unique journalist, novelist, and memoirist. He developed one of the most memorable voices in American letters that continues to haunt readers and critics of his work.”
