Tuesday, October 21, 2014, 7 p.m.
Writer Cynthia Lewis
Providence United Methodist Church
2810 Providence Road, Charlotte, N.C., 28211

Cynthia Lewis graduated summa cum laude from Ohio State University in 1974.  She then moved to Cambridge, Mass., to pursue her Ph.D. in English and American Literature and Language. There, she studied early modern dramatists including Middleton, Webster, and Shakespeare. She was a teaching fellow at Harvard University and, in her last year of graduate studies, the recipient of a Whiting Fellowship. In 1980, Dr. Lewis accepted her current teaching post at Davidson College, where she now holds the Charles A. Dana Professorship of English. In the early 1980s, she developed and taught a course on advanced composition, which in subsequent years evolved into “Creative Nonfiction.” During her sabbatical in 2000, Lewis investigated the mystery of Eric Rudolph, the alleged serial bomber rumored then to be at large in the North Carolina mountains. This research led to her first published nonfiction article in 2001 in Southern Cultures. Since then, Lewis has published articles on a wide variety of topics, from female bodybuilders to the Kim Thomas murder investigation in Charlotte, N.C.  She has also published a good deal of personal narrative, including a piece in Charlotte Magazine about moonlighting, during another sabbatical, as a bartender.
