12.15.2017 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The author of The Watery Part of the World and Don't Make Me Stop Now returns to Flyleaf to read from his new book of flash fiction, Everything, Then and Since (Bull City Press). Whether ferrying slowly across an eastern North Carolina river or reaching out to touch a train that's not about to stop, the wanderers in these stories yearn for what they can't quite grasp. It might be what they've left behind or what lies ahead, but whatever it is, it won't leave them alone. In twenty-three compact stories, Michael Parker delivers elegies for the parts of ourselves we've forgotten and testimonies to the wonders of restlessness.
