Birmingham-Southern professor co-edits anthology of Seattle prose

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern College Assistant Professor of English Peter Donahue has co-edited an anthology of Seattle prose Reading Seattle: The City in Prose to be released this month by the University of Washington Press.

Reading Seattle ranges from classics to more recent works including works by a Pulitzer Prize winner, a National Book Award winner, and a MacArthur Fellow, as well as works by important lesser-known writers.

In conjunction with the book's release, Donahue will moderate a forum May 6 titled “Seattle Writers on Seattle: A Literary Forum” at Seattle University. The forum will be taped for later airing by The Seattle Channel. Donahue also appeared on Seattle's KUOW-FM art program “The Beat” and will be doing a six-stop bookstore tour in early June, including an appearance at the Northwest Folklife Festival's literary program.

Joining the BSC faculty in 1999, he received his doctoral degree at Oklahoma State University. He also is author of The Cornelius Arms.
