Dr. Richard Sprow, professor of English, and Dorita Bolger, professor and associate librarian, will present, "John Irving: The Writer as Artist," at the Bleasby Colloquium Thursday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. in the Sebastian Mueller Theater in the McKelvey Campus Center.

 "We will talk about our sabbatical leave experience, which was to study the novels and other writings of John Irving," Sprow said.  "We will talk about collaborative scholarship, describing the process and showing some results.  We will also present some preliminary analysis of the role of the artist/writer as character in many of his works."

 "We are planning to write two books: one containing the complete annotated bibliography of works by and about Irving; and one focusing on a literary analysis of Irving's novels and films made from some of them.  The main theme of this second book will be the image of the writer/artist in Irving's writing," Sprow added.

 The event is free and open to the public.  For more information, contact Sprow at (724) 946-7346 or e-mail; or Bolger at (724) 946-7325 or e-mail
