Award-Winning Author to Speak at Baylor University Sept. 20

Sept. 19, 1995

Marshall Terry, professor of English and associate provost for undergraduate education at Southern Methodist University, will speak at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 20, in Room 101 of Baylor University's Carroll Science Hall.

Terry has written four novels and a collection of short stories, essays, historical pieces, many book reviews and newspaper articles. Some of his work has appeared in The Southwest Review. His novels include "Old Liberty," "Tom Northway," "My Father's Hands," and "New Creations." He is also working on "Angels Prostate Fall", a comic novel about prostate cancer.

"Marshall Terry has done quite a bit of work, and has been around for a long time, " said Dr. William V. Davis, professor of English and Writer-in-Residence. "He is a very well known writer, especially in Texas. He has a clear and distinct reputation and would be well-known in cities like Dallas.

"It's hard to divide out what categories his work would fit in. The best way I could describe his work is just straight fiction."

Terry has taught at SMU for several years, as well as serving as chair of the Department of English. In addition, he also founded the SMU Creative Writing Program and the SMU Literary Festival.
