TU Book Club to discuss ‘Le Morte d’Arthur’

During the next meeting of the Thomas University Book Club on Tuesday, Jan. 22, attendees will step back in time to Camelot as they discuss Sir Thomas Mallory’s “Le Morte D’Arthur.”

First published in 1485, Malory’s work is considered one of the best-known pieces of literature focusing on the tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Malory translated existing stories from 13th century French and from Middle English to compile the majority of “Le Morte D’Arthur.” Malory’s stories focus on dragons, wizadry and epic adventures that are just as popular today as they were centuries ago.

Leading the discussion will be Dr. Jason Dunn, an Associate Professor of English at Thomas University. Dunn holds a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of South Florida, a master’s degree in English from San Diego State University, and a Ph.D. in English from the University of California-Davis. Before joining TU, he was an Assistant Professor, Communications and Honors Faculty at the College of Central Florida; an Associate Instructor and then Lecturer in the English Department and University Writing Program at the University of California-Davis; and an Instructor in the English Department and the Department of Rhetoric and Writing Studies at San Diego State University.

The Book Club meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Campus Center Classroom on TU’s Forbes Campus. The meeting is free and open to the public. For more information, call 229-227-6964 or email actu@thomasu.edu.
