“Marble Goddesses and Mortal Flesh” is a collection of four novellas, each narrated by idealist Lucius Hutchfield, whose romantic vision of life makes him witness to the actions of unconventional heroes and heroines.
Madden is a native Knoxvillian and is author of “Bijou,” “Sharpshooter: A Novel of the Civil War,” and “The Suicide’s Wife.” He has been twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and has earned a number of awards and grants, including the National Council on the Arts Award for Fiction and the Rockefeller Grant in Fiction.

How does one destroy a myth? Jackson Pollock was a legend who shattered previous assumptions about painting. Associate Professor Jennifer Brickey shows how a new cool-school of female post-modern painters is competing with abstract expressionism in a way that is full of controversy, vulgarity and, of course, renegade attitude. Lecture is from 12:30-1:30 p.m., Nov. 7 in the Goins Building Auditorium.
Aspiring actors are invited to Pellissippi State Community College to audition for a spring performance of “The Seagull,” by Anton Chekhov.
