Next year marks the fiftieth anniversary of Patricia Nell Warren’s The Front Runner. I am planning an essay collection to commemorate Patricia (and already have an academic publisher that’s “definitely interested”). Pretty much any aspect on Patricia’s life and works would be welcome. There may also be a conference, but it would probably be a Zoom meeting. If you're interested, please contact me as soon as possible.
The Front Runner: athletics and homosexuality (the last taboo?), college life, fan mail, global reception, Olympic Games
The Fancy Dancer: Catholicism, smalltown homosexuality, Native American heritage
