[percy-l] Greetings

Hi, Will,

Welcome to the list. I lived in the Lowcountry for 4 years during medical school, but was introduced to Percy in college and have long been a fan. I also write fiction, and attempt to practice and teach humanistic medicine in an era of profoundly disconcerting technology.  I read The Moviegoer again the last month, which provided great comfort. It certainly makes me wonder what the good doctor would say about our current predicament.

All best,
Greg Plemmons

Hi Will, from a fellow Lowcountry resident!  Yay, there is more than one Percy lover here in the Lowcountry! I’m presently in Bluffton, though I teach at SCSU.  Where are you and what brought you here?

Rhonda’s email below kinda says it all — not sure I could add much to it information-wise.  The SAMLA conference is in Atlanta this year (November), driving distance, and there WILL be a Percy session again this year… if the virus is gone by then of course...

Welcome to the list!

Karey

Hi Will, and welcome!! We’re often quiet, so don’t be alarmed, but then folks will suddenly break into chatter about something or other.

Although coronavirus has everyone stuck at home this year, the Walker Percy weekend is a good time, I hear. I’d hoped to go this year, but now it’s delayed for a year. So we’ll see what next year brings.

The South Atlantic MLA conference typically has at least one Percy session, but often two or three, so that’s another fun gathering for Percy folks.

I was originally from Arizona but now live in Virginia. I teach community college English, although I did do Percy research for my PhD. In fact, I helped edit his posthumous Symbol and Existence which was released earlier this year.

It’d be great if you could join us at SAMLA some year and perhaps offer your reading of Percy’s hurricanes and the time the play in his fiction.

As a final note, I also write fiction and I have found a very nurturing community at the Novel-in-Process bookcamp. It’s typically held in May right in your Wisconsin, and offers both classes and a writers retreat, depending on needs.  You might want to check it out! http://novelbookcamp.org/<https://nam05.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fnovelbookcamp.org%2F&data=02%7C01%7Cgregory.plemmons%40vumc.org%7C0469dd911d9d474c61b308d7e9e7f7ea%7Cef57503014244ed8b83c12c533d879ab%7C0%7C0%7C637235054849419679&sdata=Er0%2FR0PQOaTq77S%2FfPNN4kTCdQHPccLYJwUQqqlxd6k%3D&reserved=0>

Hi Folks,

I recently joined the Percy-L list, and Henry (Mills) suggested that I introduce myself to everyone. I'm originally from the South Carolina Lowcountry but have lived in Madison, Wisconsin for the better part of 20 years now -- first as student, then as researcher at the University (where I study and develop numerical models of hurricanes). I also write fiction and was drawn to Percy's work from my first encounter with it decades ago.

Thanks for having me as part of this group, and I look forward to talking with (and learning from) you all.


Will
