March 2020 ‘Out of the Blue’ blooms with SE-YA book fest, groundbreaking archaeology dig, Nashville Fashion Week

Middle Tennessee State University‘s “Out of the Blue” TV magazine show looks ahead to spring adventures with our March 2020 edition, featuring news of the fifth annual Southeastern Young Adult Book Festival on campus, a conversation with an archaeology professor working on a groundbreaking African American historic site, and a look behind the scenes of the upcoming Nashville Fashion Week. Join us to hear from:

• MTSU alumna, English instructor and SE-YA co-founder Barbara Collie and Dr. Frank Lambert of the Womack Department of Educational Leadership in the College of Education, who are helping to welcome more than 3,000 middle and high school booklovers from across the Southeast to a three-day event connecting them with young-adult fiction authors.

• Dr. Andrew Wyatt of our Department of Sociology and Anthropology in the College of Liberal Arts, who’s guiding the historic archaeological dig at the Bass Street Community Archaeology Project, part of Nashville’s Fort Negley Park and site of one of the city’s first post-Civil War black neighborhoods.

Marcia Masulla and MTSU alumna Connie Cathcart-Richardson, co-founders of Nashville Fashion Week, now in its 10th year and an educational partner serving our fashion merchandising and apparel design students in the Department of Human Sciences in the College of Behavioral and Health Sciences.
