Richard Rodriguez, 27th Annual ODU Literary Festival
North Cafeteria, Webb Center
Richard Rodriguez's autobiography, Hunger of Memory, was greeted with great acclaim upon its publication. His second book, Days of Obligation: An Argument with my Mexican Father, was one of the three finalists for the Pulitzer Prize in the nonfiction category. His most recent book is Brown: The Last Discovery of America, in which he explores the notion of being "brown" in America and of how the emerging culture of multi-racial, polyethnic peoples, motivated by a variety of interests and educated through the spheres of many cultures, is redefining current notions of minority and majority. Rodriguez is a frequent essayist on "The News Hour" with Jim Lehrer.
