Welcome to the August Wilson Playwright blog. My name is Dr. Mike Downing and I’m an English Professor at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania.
I have been studying Mr. Wilson’s life and work since 1992 (when I lived and worked in Pittsburgh). Since then, I have taught, published, and delivered scholarly presentations related to Mr. Wilson.
This blog is intended to serve as a resource for anyone interested in the life and works of Pittsburgh-born playwright, Mr. August Wilson.
I also maintain a website dedicated to Mr. Wilson.
