National Book Award winner and UNT alumna Sarah Broom will return to campus Feb. 17 as a speaker for African American History Month.
Broom will read from her award-winning memoir “The Yellow House” — which reflects on her family and their home in New Orleans East — followed by a discussion moderated by assistant professor of English Anna Hinton and a book signing.
Broom began writing the notes that would become “The Yellow House” while a student at UNT and wove mentions of West Hall and Willis Library into the memoir.
The event is sponsored by the departments of history, English, political science, anthropology, UNT's Oral History Program, the Mayborn School of Journalism and the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.
