The creative writing program in the Department of English at ASU hosts this book launch for assistant professor Jenny Irish, celebrating the publication of Irish's new story collection, "I Am Faithful" (Black Lawrence Press, 2019). 

Praise for "I Am Faithful":

"I Am Faithful" is often beautiful, occasionally ugly and true on every page. Jenny Irish is a writer of great skill and intelligence and most of all heart.
—Kyle Minor

I am so in love with, so in awe of, so grateful for "I Am Faithful." Jenny Irish writes girlhood like none other, splaying its great intensity, its loneliness, sufferings, longings, imaginings and let-downs all.

—Jenny Boully

Reader, witness: here, in burnished, exquisite prose, is a precise telling of class in America, a portrait of those who must compromise to survive, who scrape and save, and though acting out of the grim fury misery provides, they never, under whatever circumstance, deserve to be called ‘trash.’
—Nickole Brown

I devoured these spiky, knowing, unforgettable stories, which keenly dissect the dangers of girlhood, of womanhood, in America.
—Belle Boggs

In this collection of stories, Jenny Irish's sparse, raw prose gathers briny New England interiors, the eyes of old dogs, absent mothers and cold lovers. Each character is filled with the ache of absence, each story a Russian doll packed with glass.
—Jen Michalski

All are welcome.

About John P. Frank

John P. Frank is recognized as part of the team that represented Ernesto Miranda before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1966 – the case in which the High Court ruled that suspects must be advised of their right to legal counsel. Frank wrote or delivered arguments for numerous First Amendment and desegregation cases and made important contributions to the historical brief for Brown v. Board of Education. He is remembered as well for his expertise in civil procedure and standards for judicial disqualification. A lawyer, constitutional scholar, historian, author and mentor, his opinion was sought by presidents and Supreme Court justices and he was influential in shaping public policy in Arizona and the nation.

The series, which focuses on pressing justice issues of our time, honors Frank's life-long commitments to justice, scholarship and law. Justice and Social Inquiry is proud to host the John P. Frank Lecture, which has been made possible through the generosity of the Phoenix law firm Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP (formerly Lewis and Roca), which Frank joined in 1954, and Frank's many friends and admirers.

The ASU Book Group's January 2020 reading selection is "Call Him Mac: Ernest W. McFarland, the Arizona Years" by Gary L. Stuart. The book group is open to all in the ASU community and meets monthly from noon to 1 p.m. in the Piper Writers House on ASU's Tempe campus. Haven't read the book? Come anyway! Authors are always present. A no-host luncheon follows at the University Club. 

Synopsis:

This biography of Arizona Governor Ernest W. McFarland chronicles McFarland's career with an emphasis on how McFarland learned the basic ropes and skills of the law and politics during his Florence days.

Stuart reveals how Mac became an expert on water law and a visionary in Arizona's agricultural future. Using interviews with friends and family and extensive primary source research, Stuart spotlights Mac's unerring focus as a loving husband, father, and grandfather, even in times of great personal tragedy. Mac's commitments to his family mirrored his sense of fiduciary duty in public life. His enormous political successes were answers to how he dealt with threats to his own life in 1919, the loss of his first wife and three children in the 1930s, and a political loss in 1952 that no one saw coming.

The book is available from amazon.com.

Gary L. Stuart is a faculty associate in the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at ASU.

The ASU Book Group meetings and selections for 2019–2020 are:

The ASU Book Group is sponsored as a community outreach initiative by the Department of English and organized in partnership with the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing.
