2023 Hughlene Bostian Frank Visiting Writers Series (Multiple Dates) | Boone

March 2, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - April 27, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

American racial identities, Latine voices in Appalachia, family, and landscapes — of Appalachia and elsewhere — are among the subjects explored in the authors’ works.

The visiting authors, in order of appearance:

  • Novelist Jessie van Eerden and poet Thorpe Moeckel, March 2.
  • Poet Ricardo Nazario-Colón, March 23.
  • Former U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey, April 20.
  • Poets Nickole Brown and Jessica Jacobs, April 27.

Each author will read from and discuss their work and lead talks on the craft of writing. Through these talks, aspiring writers can learn how to refine techniques, develop sounder work habits and gain a greater appreciation of the writing process.

Admission to all events is free and open to the public. Book sales and signings will follow the talks and the readings.

For additional information about the fall series, including campus locations for each reading, visit the Department of English website and/or contact series co-director Susan Weinberg, associate professor in the English department, at weinbergsc@appstate.edu.

Parking is free after 5, but anyone wanting to come to an afternoon talk should telephone the parking.appstate.edu office for info on buying a daytime parking pass.
