Event Navigation

UNC Asheville English faculty Lori Horvitz and Jennifer McGaha will present readings from their newest respective works at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 27 in the Sherrill Center, Mountain View Room.

Horvitz will read from “Collect Call to My Mother: Essays on Love, Grief, and Getting a Good Night’s Sleep,” a collection of short memoir pieces “full of subtle wit and passionate yearning,” according to Kirkus Reviews. McGaha will read from “Bushwhacking: How to Get Lost in the Woods and Write Your Way Out,” which Publishers Weekly calls a “gutsy, entertaining, and heartening” collection of essays that mixes adventure in the Appalachians with discoveries about the creative process. Converstation with the authors and a question-and-answer session will follow the readings.

Prior to the reading, Horvitz and McGaha will host a memoir-writing workshop at 6 p.m. Registration for both events is free and open to the public. Register here.
