Gurney Norman and Pauletta Hansel: A Reading of New Work about Appalachia
September 14, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT
Gurney Norman will read from Allegiance, and Pauletta Hansel will read from Coal Town Photograph.
In beloved Kentucky writer Gurney Norman’s new book of stories, we rejoin the life of Norman’s fictional character Wilgus Collier, known to readers from the Kinfolks stories, as Wilgus struggles to understand his working-class Appalachian childhood and deal with midlife alcoholism and depression.
The poetry in Pauletta Hansel’s Coal Town Photograph is one part edgy, one part Bildungsroman; and at her deft hand, in its coming-of-age, what has been lost is renewed, redeemed, and remade. Hansel prizes memory for the resource that it is.
Join them at Roebling Point Books and Coffee at 306 Greenup St, Covington, Kentucky, 41011.
