Southampton Windmill Literary Landmark Dedication Ceremony
Start Date: 7/13/2013Start Time: 3:45 PM
End Date: 7/13/2013

Event Description:
The historic and iconic windmill on the Southampton campus of Stony Brook University has won designation as a Literary Landmark from United for Libraries, a division of the American Library Association. Landmark status was granted to the windmill based on playwright Tennessee Williams having lived there during the summer of 1957 while he was writing his experimental play, The Day on Which a Man Dies, in response to the death of his friend Jackson Pollock the summer before.

In recognition of the landmark designation, a dedication ceremony will be held at the windmill with a reading of a new one-act play, At Stanley’s Place, by MFA in Creative Writing and Literature faculty member Frederic Tuten. The Stanley of the title is Stanley Kowalski from the Williams classic, A Streetcar Named Desire. In addition to the characters of Stanley and Blanche DuBois from that play, men and women from other major American plays populate the cast of At Stanley’s Place.

Play reading is at 3:45 pm. Windmill dedication is at 5:15 pm.
