Visiting Writers Series: Poet Charlotte Pence
Time: 6:00pm
Location: Olin B Lecture Hall

Charlotte Pence will read from her recent book of poems, Code, on February 1.

Code received the 2020 Book of the Year award from Alabama Poetry Society and was a finalist for Foreword Reviews Indie Poetry Book of 2020.  Code details not only the life cycle of birth and death, but also the means of this cycle: DNA itself. Her first book of poems, Many Small Fires (Black Lawrence Press, 2015), won Foreword Reviews’ silver medal award in poetry. Both poetry books weave together personal experience and scientific exploration. She is also the author of two award-winning poetry chapbooks and the editor of The Poetics of American Song Lyrics. Her poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction have recently been published in Harvard Review, Poetry, Sewanee Review, Southern Review, and Brevity. A graduate of Emerson College (MFA) and the University of Tennessee (PhD), she is now the director of the Stokes Center for Creative Writing at University of South Alabama.

The reading is free and open to the public.

The spring International Film Series — hosted by the Department of Modern Languages — starts with From Dad to Worse (Un padre no tan padre).

“This quirky comedy … follows 85-year-old Don Servando Villegas, an old-fashioned Mexican patriarch who gets kicked out of his retirement home for bad behavior. When his estranged son… is forced to take him into the house full of hippies he shares with his girlfriend and young son, “new age” collides with old age as Don Servando and his son Francisco experience a series of conflicts and situations that puts their home’s stability in jeopardy. Un Padre No Tan Padre is a story about family: the one we’re born into and the one we create along the way.”

Written by Alberto Bremer and directed by Raúl Martínez.

The spring International Film Series — hosted by the Department of Modern Languages — continues with Balloon.

“In the summer of 1979, following years of careful planning, two East German families attempt the impossible.  In a makeshift hot-air balloon, the group risk their lives and fly the rickety craft towards West Germany with hopes of freedom and a better life.  Unfortunately, the balloon crash-lands just before they reach the West German border and the Stasi soon discover evidence of the attempted escape.  In a nerve-wracking race against the clock, the two families must now rush to build a new escape balloon before the notorious Stasi can catch them."

Co-written and directed by Michael Bully Herbig, written with Kit Hopkins and Thilo Röscheisen.

(Germany, Thriller/Drama, 125 min, PG-13)
