Five UALR students presented at the Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society Convention held in Pittsburgh last month.
Robert Bruno of Little Rock, presented “I Am Not Writing About You: A Collection of Poetry;” Suzi Garcia of Little Rock read from her work, “Unrelating to One Another: A Collection of Poetry;” and Deannah Johnson of North Little Rock, Sam Brown and Aaron Barger, both of Benton, presented “Masculinity Doesn’t Make the Man: Male Characters in the work of S.E. Hinton.”
The 2011 convention included over 125 sessions (nearly 700 papers), featuring the works both of Sigma Tau Delta students and alumni, and of members of Sigma Kappa Delta, the English honor society for two-year colleges.
Sigma Tau Delta’s central purpose is to confer distinction upon students of the English language and literature in undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies. Sigma Tau Delta also recognizes the accomplishments of professional writers who have contributed to the fields of language and literature.
With nearly 800 active chapters located in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and the Caribbean, there are more than 1,000 faculty sponsors, and approximately 9,000 members inducted annually in the society.
