deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 5, 2016

Frank Yerby, over the course of his literary career, published thirty-three books. Throughout his lifetime, he sold millions of copies of those books becoming a millionaire in the process. Even with these successes, Yerby remains a footnote in the histories of American literature. As such, we seek to organize a panel for the 2017 College Language Association in Columbia, Missouri, on Frank Yerby’s work and life.

From David Simon’s Homicide, The Corner, and The Wire to the novels of George Pelecanos, Ta-Nehisi Coates’s books and blog, and Jelani Cobb’s journalistic histories of the city, Baltimore has become a focus of cultural and scholarly engagements with issues of race, class, community, justice, and identity in contemporary America. In this roundtable, we’ll consider these and other voices and texts, using their works and Baltimore itself to help us discuss and analyze the place and role of artistic, journalistic, and public scholarly engagements with 21st-century America.
