Regis Adjunct Professor to give a book reading in Cambridge on November 29

November 26, 2012

What’s the emotional cost of speaking the language of men, especially the men in a working class town on Long Island? That language can be funny, brutal and poignant, and you can share the experience. Anthony D’Aries, who has joined the Regis College English department as an adjunct faculty member, will read from his book, The Language of Men (Hudson Whitman, 2012) at Porter Square Books on Thursday, November 29, at 7 p.m.

The memoir began with D’Aries’ search to learn who his father was. Growing up in a working class town on Long Island, Anthony watched his father, a former military cook in Vietnam, rebuild muscle cars, groove to rock ‘n’ roll, slice meat at the local deli, and bring roadkill back to life in his taxidermy workshop. Anthony, the impressionable younger son, loved his father.

Tracy Kidder, author of Strength in What Remains, considers the book “an impressive debut from a young writer.”

Anthony D’Aries received the 2010 PEN/New England Discovery Award in Nonfiction. He is a graduate of the Stonecoast MFA program and currently teaches literacy and creative writing in correctional facilities in Massachusetts. At Regis, he currently conducts a writing seminar as well as a creative nonfiction workshop, and he will teach rhetoric and professional writing in the spring.
