From Uncle Tom’s Cabin to To Kill a Mockingbird, white women novelists have produced some of America’s most enduring portraits of racism in America. Annmarie Hamlin, who teaches writing and literature at COCC, helps put those stories into a larger literary perspective in a presentation called Cabins, Mockingbirds and Help: White Women Writing Black Stories. Hamlin will offer her insight into how the issue of race has been portrayed in best sellers and literature in the United States at the Sisters Library on Sunday, April 18 at 2:00 pm, at the Bend Library on Tuesday, April 20 at 6:30 pm, and at the Sunriver Area Public Library on Saturday, April 24 at 2:00 pm.
Hamlin holds a Ph.D. in literature from the Claremont Graduate School and taught for more than ten years at La Sierra University in Riverside, Ca. before moving to Bend in 2007.
