The Southern Utah University Convocations Series will finalize its fall season Thursday, November 6, as Elena Passarello, in conjunction with the SUU Outdoor Center, will present on wilderness literature.

Passarello’s presentation will also be a part of the Wilderness Forum that be conducted at SUU from Wednesday, November 5 to Friday, November 7.

This presentation, Where the Wild Voices are: A Literary Perspective on Wilderness, combined with Passarello’s rich background in pop culture, music, the performing arts and the natural world have gained her recognition in Slate, Creative Nonfiction, Normal School, Ninth Letter and Iowa Review, all renowned publications.  

The esteemed author’s debut nonfiction collection, Let me Clear My Throat, explores the human voice in popular performance. She has also co-written a series of devised nonfiction monologues for the 2012 music-writing anthology Pop When the World Falls Apart.

SUU Convocations is a year-round lecture series that gives students and the local community the opportunity to engage today's leaders, thinkers and innovators from across the globe in thoughtful discussion of profession and society.
