NOVA faculty and staff are invited to join the launch celebration for Volume 29 of The Northern Virginia Review (TNVR) March 26 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Seminar Rooms A to D in the Ernst Center (CE Building) at the Annandale Campus.
Annandale Assistant English Professor Adam Chiles, TNVR editor-in-chief, will serve as master of ceremonies for the annual launch reception. The keynote speaker will be Justin Martin, who will discuss his new book, “Rebel Souls: Walt Whitman and America’s First Bohemians.” Refreshments will follow Martin’s talk.
“Rebel Souls” is the first book to chronicle the lives of a colorful circle of writers, performers and visual artists who transported the Bohemian culture from Paris to Pfaff’s saloon on Broadway in the mid-19th century and nurtured a tradition of rebellion in American art.
Martin has also written biographies of Frederick Law Olmsted, Ralph Nader and Alan Greenspan. A former Fortune magazine staff writer based in New York City, he has written articles on diverse topics for various magazines and newspapers around the country.
TNVR is an annual publication of essays, fine art, photography, poetry and short stories. Contributors include NOVA faculty, staff and alumni, and writers and artists from the greater Washington metropolitan area.
