UA tribute to author and alumnus David Foster Wallace is Friday

The University of Arizona Poetry Center will host a memorial tribute to alumnus David Foster Wallace on Friday.

Wallace, who the Los Angeles Times called “one of the most influential and innovative writers of the last 20 years,” graduated from UA’s creative writing masters of fine arts program in 1987.

He committed suicide in September, after years of clinical depression.

Panel discussions of Wallace’s work will begin at 2 and 3:30 p.m. at the UA Poetry Center, 1508 E. Helen St. The tribute will conclude with an 8 p.m. reading of Wallace’s work.

Wallace wrote a number of books, including “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men” and “Infinite Jest.” His unfinished novel “The Pale King” will be published next spring by Little, Brown.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
