Georgia’s Pulitzer Prizes


The Georgia Review will bring together four recent Pulitzer Prize winners in October for a four-day celebration of “The Pulitzer Legacy in Georgia.”

The event, Oct. 27-30 at the Jekyll Island Club, will include poets Stephen Dunn and Natasha Trethewey, journalist Hank Klibanoff, and historian Edward Larson.

Dunn, a frequent contributor to the Georgia Review, won the 2001 Pulitzer in poetry. Tretheway (BA ’89), a professor at Emory University, was awarded the Pulitzer for poetry in 2007. Klibanoff, until recently a managing editor at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, won the 2007 Pulitzer in history for a book on civil rights he penned with fellow journalist Gene Roberts. Edward Larson, a former UGA professor now at Pepperdine University, won the 1998 history prize for his book on the debate over the theory of evolution.

The event is open to the public. For information on registration and lodging, go to
