Event Navigation

On February 21 at 7 p.m. in Highsmith’s Blue Ridge Room, the UNC Asheville English department will host an evening to honor our beloved colleague, Katherine Min, and celebrate her posthumously published novel, “The Fetishist.” The event is free and open to the public.

Min’s daughter, Kayla Min Andrews assisted with editing the manuscript and will host the reading. Min Andrews teaches English to international students and is working on a novel about a mother-daughter relationship.

Mesha Maren, UNC Asheville alumna, is the author of the novels “Sugar Run” and “Perpetual West.” Her short stories and essays can be read in “Tin House,” “The Oxford American,” “The Guardian,” “Crazyhorse,” Triquarterly,” “The Southern Review,” and elsewhere. She is an associate professor of the practice of English at Duke University.
