Please join us for what is sure to be a delightful conversation about the writing life between authors Fenton Johnson and Kim Edwards.
“A writer with deep Appalachian roots rehearses his life story, positioning it under the most exacting of microscopes. . . . In taut, sometimes-tense prose, Johnson shows us so many varieties of human pain as well as many glimmers of hope.”
— Kirkus Review
Part retrospective, part memoir, Fenton Johnson's collection Everywhere Home: A Life in Essays explores sexuality, religion, geography, the AIDS crisis, and more. Johnson's wanderings take him from the hills of Kentucky to those of San Francisco, from the streets of Paris to the sidewalks of Calcutta.
From Kim Edwards, the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Memory Keeper's Daughter, an arresting novel of one family's secret history
