Aficionados Lecture and Luncheon: "What Should I Read? English Professor Laura Padilla Answers a Much-Asked Question"


Gaylord Hall
main floor of Worner Campus Center, 902 N. Cascade Ave.



In her years of attending Aficionados Luncheons and enjoying conversations with inquisitive and interested guests, Laura Padilla has often been asked as a professor of English, "What Should I Read?" This question often led to interesting conversations at individual tables, but Padilla will now answer this question in a systematic fashion. In this talk, she will describe many different schools of literature in the Southwest, the literary preferences of different eras, and she will recommend several different authors for you to search out and enjoy. She also eagerly expects recommendations from the audience, in the interest of developing a list of Recommended Books for Aficionados.

Cost to attend is $17 (includes buffet lunch). For more information on the lecture or to make a reservation, please call 389-6334 or email

Deadline:  Friday, November 2, 2012, for reservations and cancellations.
