TU’s Book Club kicks off new year with discussion about Edgar Allan Poe

The first meeting for Thomas University’s Book Club will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17, and will include a discussion about two of Edgar Allan Poe’s short stories, “Berenice” and “Ligeia.”

The discussion will be led by Dr. Diane “D.K.” Roberts, an author columnist, essayist, radio commentator, reviewer and professor at Florida State University, where she teaches creative writing and American Literature. Her books include “Tribal: College Football and the Secret Heart of America”; “Dream Sate: Eight Generations of Swamp Lawyers, Conquistadors, Confederate Daughters, Banana Republicans, and other Florida Wildlife”; “Faulkner and Southern Woodman”; and “The Myth of Aunt Jemima.”

Robert’s essays have been published in the Oxford America, Flamingo Magazine and the Tampa Bay Times. She was recently interviewed about Poe on BBC World Service’s “Forum” with Bridget Kendall. That interview will air in late September.

The Book Club meets in the Campus Center Classroom on TU’s Forbes Campus and is part of Arts for the Community at Thomas University (ACTU). For more information, call 229-227-6964 or email Visit to learn about other ACTU events.
