Friends of the Library Lecture - Sy...

Sunday, January 28, 2018, 3 – 4pm
Friends of the Library Lecture - Sylvia Torti

Facebook event: www.facebook.com…
"Cages"
This event is part of the Friends of the Library lecture series.
Dr. Torti will be discussing her book “Cages”.

---

Set in and around a research laboratory in which two scientists are experimenting on birds to discover the origins of memory and birdsong, CAGES is a complex interweaving of biological, philosophical and mystical themes. It is also a story of love, loss and memory as the two scientists vie for the heart of a young research assistant, yet like the birds whose songs they have muted, are unable to express their true feelings for her; and she in turn refuses to be "caged."

Sylvia Torti is an ecologist and fiction writer. She completed her PhD at the University of Utah, focusing on the unique and little understood phenomenon of tropical monodominance (natural monocultures) in Congo, Africa. Her first novel, The Scorpion's Tail, was published in 2005 and won the Miguel Mármol Award for best debut fiction by an American Latino/a. Her second novel, CAGES, was published in May 2017 by Schaffner Press and won the Nicolas Schaffner Award for Music in Literature. Her short stories and essays have been published in numerous magazines and edited volumes. Sylvia's interdisciplinary background has allowed her to develop unique collaborations with artists, which have resulted in new undergraduate courses, such as the Dual Immersion: Landscape Ecology/Landscape Painting, Science and Storytelling, and an Integrated Minor in Ecology and Legacy. She is currently Dean of the Honors College, University of Utah and Associate Director of Mapping Meaning. Campus LocationsMarriott Library - J. Willard (M LIB)
