The writers are all part of the program’s invitation-only prose master class. Elizabeth Lutyens, who teaches the master class, will host the reading, beginning at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15, at Malaprop's Bookstore/Café, 55 Haywood St., downtown Asheville. It is free and open to the public.
The professional backgrounds of the authors inform the short stories and novel excerpts that will be presented. Among those reading will be a lawyer, a potter, a computer executive, a religious studies scholar, and a chemical engineer who contributed to the panel of scientists awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their work on climate change. The readers are Lenny Bernstein, Bob Brooks, Marie Hefley, Terry Gess, Judi Goldenberg, Jennifer McLean, Beth Robrecht and Justin Watson.
