OXFORD, Miss. — Tickets for a folk-opera adaptation of William Faulkner’s novel As I Lay Dying are on sale at the University of Mississippi’s Central Ticket Office in the Student Union.

Performed by The Reckon Crew — a quartet of singer-songwriters from Nashville — the July 24 event is part of this year’s Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference on the University of Mississippi campus. The 8 p.m. performance is in the School of Education auditorium on University Avenue.

Tickets for the production are $7 for adults and $5 for students, seniors and children. To reserve tickets using VISA and MasterCard, call the Central Ticket Office at (662) 915-7411.

The Reckon Crew members are Tommy Goldsmith, Tom House, David Olney and Karren Pell.

The July 21-26 conference “Faulkner and His Contemporaries” addresses how the Nobel laureate’s work is a reflection of, and a commentary on, the major intellectual movements of the day. It also explores the literary and intellectual relationships Faulkner shared with other writers.
