Robert Erickson of Cistercian Preparatory School will be Reading His Paper "An Unfortunate Paralysis" at the 2013 Dubliners Colloquium Hosted at The Oakridge School

The Oakridge School is excited to host Robert Erickson of Cistercian Preparatory School on February 6th. Robert will be presenting his paper, “An Unfortunate Paralysis,” at the 2013 Dubliners Colloquium. Congratulations Mr. Erickson!
Robert Erickson is currently a junior at Cistercian, the school he has attended since the fifth grade. In addition to English and literature, he enjoys math, science, and music. In his spare time, Robert competes in baseball and basketball; in addition, he has been playing the piano for twelve years, and is close to becoming an Eagle Scout. His main motivation in writing about the story, “Eveline”, was that something about the story resonated with what he knew to be true by experience (even though the tale is much more drastic). Initially, Robert struggled to find a clear vision of what that was, so this paper could be thought of as a record of his personal exploration of the matter.
Mr. Erickson will be reading his paper during the first block of presentations in a session entitled “Eveline, Paralysis, and the Challenge to Make a Choice.” The location of the session will be announced soon.
