The English Department's Raymond DiLorenzo Essay Award and Book Launch has been rescheduled for Thursday, Feb. 13 at 3 p.m. in the Gorman Faculty Lounge.
The award honors the late UD professor's deep interest in rhetoric and long hours helping students hone their writing by choosing the student with the best Literary Tradition II research paper for the academic year.
The award ceremony coincides with the release of Dr. DiLorenzo's book, The Human Word. DiLorenzo worked on the book his whole career, finishing it heroically during retirement (even as he struggled with cancer). Event attendees will be able to view the work online and get more information.
Students, faculty, and the public are invited to this event; refreshments will be served.
