For the second installment of the Last Throes Reading Series, we’d like to present Winston Salem writer Steve Mitchell! Mitchell’s new short story collection “The Naming of the Ghosts” is scheduled for release later this month from Press 53. His work has been published in the Southeast Review, Contrary, Glossolalia, and The North Carolina Literary Review, among others, and has been nominated three times for the Pushcart Prize. His short story, “Above the Rooftop,” was named a storySouth Million Writers Award Notable Story of 2010, and he is currently completing a novel, Body of Trust. You can visit his website at http://www.thisisstevemitchell.com/.
Creative non-fiction writer LaTasha Jones of Fayetteville, NC will be joining Steve. Her as yet unpublished manuscript examines the racial line drawn by the railroad tracks that cut through Greenville, NC. Her unique perspective provides an unflinching look and provides a useful and honest dialogue about race here in North Carolina.
As always, the event is free and will start at around 7 PM. Come out and show your support for NC literary culture!
