A Conversation With Dr. Matthew Batt and Dr. Leslie Miller

Batt's first published work, Sugarhouse, is his harrowing and often hilarious story of renovating a Salt Lake City crack house. Miller's Y, her sixth collection of poetry, "describes motherhood with a broad-ranging intelligence, a fierce humor, and an elegant, emotive poetic line," according to her publisher, Graywolf Press. Batt and Miller are faculty members in the English Department and will read from their works on Friday, Sept. 21.

He describes his presentation on "The Nullification Crisis of 1832” "as the culmination of my work over the years. It was the realization of the whole process." Nullification occasionally makes news even today.
