Author Aaron Angello to speak at HCC

The English and Humanities Division at Hagerstown Community College will host a lecture with author Aaron Angello on Monday, April 25, at 7 p.m. in room BSH 114 at HCC.

Angello is the author of “The Fact of Memory: 114 Ruminations and Fabrications,” a genre-defying collection of short prose pieces that explore the subtleties of recollection, imagination, and the connections, both momentary and long-lasting, between oneself and others. Each piece riffs on a word from Shakespeare’s Sonnet 29. The results are sometimes funny, sometimes profound, and sometimes heartbreaking, accumulating into a map of a mind at work, a Gen X coming-of-age of sorts, seamlessly invoking the likes of The Golden Girls, Spinoza, Rick Springfield, and Rimbaud.

Angello is an assistant professor of English and the director of the theatre program at Hood College. The HCC lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Kate Benchoff, associate professor of English at HCC, at kkbenchoff@hagerstowncc.edu.
