Writers’ Workshop graduates Jerry Gabriel and Karen Leona Anderson will read from their work. Jerry Gabriel will read from his story collection Drowned Boy. "Drowned Boy is a collection of linked stories that explore isolation, death, and moral and social significance in small-town rural America. Ray Carver would recognize these characters and situations, as would poet Philip Levine."–Andrea Barrettand. Karen Leona Anderson will read from her poetry collection, Punish Honey, winner of the Carolina Wren Press Poetry Series Prize. “An unstinting, in fact sumptuous, linguistic feast. Few first books make such a heady contribution to poetics.” —Alice Fulton
