Reynolds Price


Reynolds Price '55 has had an inestimable impact on the Duke community—as teacher, author, friend, adviser, alumnus, and mentor. To honor his contributions to the university and to the larger literary canon, a three-day jubilee is planned January 31 to February 2. The schedule includes discussions, academic panels, staged readings from one of his plays, screenings of two documentary films about Price's life and teaching, and presentations from colleagues and former students.

Participants include Toni Morrison, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature; Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Ford; Hemingway/PEN Award-winning novelist Josephine Humphreys '67; PBS talk-show host Charlie Rose '64, J.D. '68; and literary theorist and New York Times columnist Stanley Fish.
