EDMUNDSON TO SPEAK AT FALL CONVOCATON
Mark W. Edmundson, the Daniels Family NEH Distinguished Teaching Professor of Arts & Sciences and an English department faculty member, will speak at Fall Convocation on Oct. 21 at University Hall.

Fall Convocation recognizes undergraduate students for their academic excellence. Intermediate Honors will be presented to the top 20 percent of students who earned at least 60 credits of course work at U.Va. during their first two years.

Edmundson, on leave this year to write a book on Sigmund Freud, said being selected to speak is an honor. “How many chances do you have to talk to all the best of the third-year students?” he said.

A teacher for more than 25 years, Edmundson is the author of several books, including “Why Read?” and “Teacher: The One Who Made the Difference,” his two most recent on education.

At Fall Convocation, U.Va. President John T. Casteen III will announce the recipient of this year’s Thomas Jefferson Award, U.Va.’s highest honor. It recognizes a member of the University community who exemplifies the ideals of the University’s founder through character, work and devotion.

MORENO TO DISCUSS HIS EXPERIENCE AS A HOSPITAL ETHICIST AT BOOK SIGNINGS
Jonathan D. Moreno, director of the Center for Biomedical Ethics, will discuss his experiences as a hospital ethicist at two local book signings to promote his new book, “Is There an Ethicist in the House? On the Cutting Edge of Bioethics.” The book signings will be held at the U.Va. Bookstore on Sept. 20 at 5 p.m. and at New Dominion Book Shop on Oct. 11 at 5 p.m.

Moreno also will sign books and moderate a panel on bioethics at the Center for American Progress, where he is a senior fellow, in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 3 at 10 a.m.

An authority on biomedical ethics, Moreno thinks philosophers, particularly those working in rapidly changing fields of medicine, have a crucial role. Emerging technology in medicine and scientific research offer benefits, but also pose powerful challenges to society.

“How do we strike a humane balance between helping to advance medicine while doing no harm — medically, psychologically or morally?” Moreno asks. “Who decides, and how?”

His book — part memoir, part philosophy, part science, part case study — addresses these questions and illustrates the growing need for ethical awareness in an increasingly technological world.

For more information about the book, aimed at medical professionals, scholars and general readers confronting life-and-death decisions, call Charlene Kaufman at 924-5974.

LOCAL AUTHOR FEATURED AT FILM FESTIVAL
Best-selling local author John Grisham will be a featured guest at the 18th annual Virginia Film Festival, Oct. 27-30. With the theme IN/JUSTICE, the festival will feature more than 70 films and 80 guest artists and speakers.
The lawyer-turned-novelist will appear onstage with Hollywood Reporter critic and author Duane Byrge, discussing the film adaptations of Grisham’s novels and his experiences taking a book to screen. Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Rainmaker,” adapted from a Grisham novel, will be screened Oct. 30.

The festival will present several national or regional debuts, including “Nine Lives,” starring Glenn Close, Sissy Spacek and Holly Hunter, accompanied by its director, Rodrigo Garcia; “Manderlay,” directed by Lars von Trier and starring Danny Glover; “The Untold Story of Emmet Till”; and “Sophie Scholl,” an acclaimed German feature from Zeitgeist Films about an anti-Nazi resister.

Jon Langford of the punk rock band The Mekons and the alt-country band The Waco Brothers will present “The Executioner’s Last Songs,” a multi-media performance featuring murder ballads set against Langford’s own artwork. Silent film legend Harold Lloyd will be serenaded as Donald Sosin and Joanna Seaton provide live musical accompaniment to Lloyd’s crime-fighting comedy “The Kid Brother.”  

The Adrenaline Film Project, led by Jeff Wadlow and Beau Bauman, the director and producer of the upcoming “Cry_Wolf,” is a three-day filmmaking blitz by 27 local filmmakers, culminating Sunday with a screening at Culbreth Theatre.
