In 2010, Carl Peterson and Ryan Browne founded The Pure Products Reading and Lecture Series to give instructors at the University of Alabama a space and audience for their creative endeavors. The series also includes graduate students, tenured professors, and most notably–people not involved in the English Department, in order to inject an inter-disciplinary flavor into the proceedings. Presenters have come from departments such as history, psychology, art, American studies, and astrophysics.

Unfortunately, in 2011, Browne left the pastures of Tuscaloosa for the woods of Wisconsin.

For 2011-12, Carl Peterson will host the series, which will be held more or less monthly. All readings take place at Green Bar in the heart of downtown Tuscaloosa and start at 7 p.m. on selected Thursdays. We’ve also decided to include creative writers from other parts of the state or country, while still staying true to the initial template.
