Faculty in Plane Crash
On Thursday night, a TWA jet crashed on takeoff at Kennedy International airport, containing forty-five passengers and crew members aboard, with five people reported dead.
Aboard the plane were two professors from Blackwater state college. They were both returning from separate conferences in New York city, and both managing to escape any injury.
“You can’t be a great writer by imitating styles of prize-winning authors. You’ve got to get out and sample life, learn how other people live, and then let your inner feelings pour out. These parodies they assign in college English courses are a bunch of hogwash” Meeman said.
Meeman is known for his book, My Life as Far as It Goes, which won him the nobel prize two years ago.
On Sunday, the notable author, Meeman, winner of the Pulitzer prize, spoke to an audience of 67 students at the William Oxley Thomas Memorial Library at 4:30 p.m. in Room 111.
