Event Information
Event Date: 
Monday, February 17, 2020 - 6:00pm
Union Lyceum

National Book Award winner and UNT alumna Sarah Broom ('02) will return to campus Feb. 17 as a speaker during African American History Month. Sarah will read from her award-winning memoir The Yellow House -- which reflects on her family and their home in New Orleans East -- before a discussion moderated by assistant professor of English Anna Hinton and a book signing. Sarah began writing the notes that would become The Yellow House while a student at UNT and wove mentions of West Hall and Willis Library into the memoir. The event is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the departments of history, English, political science, anthropology, UNT's Oral History Program, the Mayborn School of Journalism, and the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. Join us at 6 p.m. Feb. 17 in the University Union Lyceum to welcome Sarah back to UNT.
