Playwright and novelist Sandra C. Seaton will present the Indiana Association of Historians’ 2008 Thornbrough Lecture, “Unrecorded History: Dramatizing the Past,” in the Ford Salon, Robertson Hall (enter at north end of Robertson Hall—downstairs, below the Eidson-Duckwall recital room), on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis.
Sandra Seaton’s play The Bridge Party won a Theodore Ward Prize for New African American Playwrights. Her text, From the Diary of Sally Hemings, was set to music by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer William Bolcom and has been sung at the Library of Congress, the Kennedy Center, and other venues. Her most recent work, Sally, a solo play about the life of Sally Hemings, premiered at the New York State Writer's Institute in Albany, New York. Sandra Seaton's other plays include Do You Like Philip Roth? and The Will, a play about a black family in Tennessee during Reconstruction. Her plays have been performed in Chicago, Los Angeles, and in New York. At Central Michigan University, she taught playwriting, fiction writing and African American literature.
A reception will immediately follow the lecture.
