Program Description

Event Details

The late Walter Tevis, a former Athenian and admired English professor at Ohio U, wrote several critically-acclaimed novels that inspired Hollywood filmmaking (The HustlerThe Man Who Fell to Earth, etc). The latest triumph is his 1983 novel The Queen's Gambit, which is the basis for a hit Netflix mini-series of the same name. This is a feminist novel of interesting social dynamics and psychological depth, dealing with an unlikely young woman (a troubled orphan), who evolves into a national chess champion.

Our guest discussion leader is Dr. Nicole Reynolds, Associate Professor in the Department of English at Ohio University.
