Event Details

Jean Walton, Mary Cappello and James Morrison all attended UB as graduate students in the storied English Department during the 1980’s. All earned PhDs there and went on to successful writing and teaching careers. Buffalo Trace: a Threefold Vibration is their shared memoir of their time here, a crucial period for their own growing up as people and as scholars/academics at a telling time in Buffalo and UB history. A remarkable, powerful and moving triangulated coming of age story perhaps unique to Buffalo and a testament to the renowned and sometimes controversial UB English Department, Buffalo Trace is as smooth, with similar spicy complexity, as the Kentucky Bourbon with which it shares its name. This book is certain to become an essential addition to the Buffalo book collection.

Early reader, the author/critic Lucy Jane Bledsoe says: “Their stories embrace the contradictions and rigors and limitations of academia, and yet this trilogy of essays can also be read as an ode to Buffalo, the deeply American town that provided cover and even salvation for these three writers. Who can resist the assertion that “Buffalo was itself a kind of Paris of the rust belt”? Ultimately, this is a love story, among friends, lovers, literature, and even Buffalo.”
