Brenda Flanagan, 33rd Annual ODU Literary Festival
Brenda Flanagan left school in Trinidad at age 14 to help support her family. In 1967 she came to the USA, where she worked as a domestic servant. Marriage and motherhood further kept her from an education until 1975, when she began her studies at the University of Michigan. She is the author of the prize-winning novel You Alone Are Dancing, a collection of stories, In Praise of Island Women and Other Crimes, and the forthcoming, Allah in the Islands.
Flanagan read on Wednesday, October 6, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. in the Village Bookstore.
