'Sharecropper's Son' John O. Hodges to Read at UT Library at Hodges Library Auditorium

Monday, 10 February, 2014

John O. Hodges will read at UT's Writers in the Library Monday, February 10th at 7 pm in the John C. Hodge's Library Auditorium. The reading is free and open to the public.

John O. Hodges is a former UT faculty member in the Department of Religious Studies, and he served as chair of African and African-American Studies from 1997 to 2002. In his time at UT, Hodges has been recognized as an outstanding teacher by the UT National Alumni Association and has won several other awards, including the Lorayne Lester Award for distinguished service to the university. Hodge's new book, Delta Fragments: The Recollections of a Sharecropper's Son, details his experiences as a youth growing up in the Mississippi Delta during the 1950s and 1960s and places these moments in the context of larger themes, such as the civil rights movement and religion in the African-American community.
