Joe Coomer: A Life in Letters Exhibition Opening

Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 6:00 PM

Join us Thursday, April 18th for a reception at 6pm in the Texana Room and a lecture and book signing at 6:30pm in the Stanley Marcus Reading Room celebrating acclaimed author Joe Coomer ’81, who recently donated his literary archive — more than 20 boxes of materials - to the DeGolyer Library. The current exhibit draws on this wealth of material, from Coomer’s earliest undergraduate essays and exams to manuscripts of his most recent novels. Known for his graceful prose and memorable characters, Coomer has published 11 works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. “A Life in Letters” explores Coomer’s creative process through handwritten manuscripts, typed drafts, galley proofs, first editions, and translations. In conjunction with the exhibit, DeGolyer Library is republishing Coomer’s first novel, The Decatur Road, in a limited “thirtieth anniversary edition."
