Visiting Writers Series: The Katherine Min Memorial Reading with UNC Asheville Alumna Sarah Addison Allen ’07
August 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join UNC Asheville Alumna and New York Times Bestselling novelist Sarah Addison Allen for the launch of her latest novel, Other Birds.
With millions of books now in print and translated into more than 30 languages, Sarah continues to serve heaping helpings of the fantastic and the familiar in fiction she describes as “”Southern-fried magic realism.”” Her books to date are: Garden Spells, The Sugar Queen, The Girl Who Chased the Moon, The Peach Keeper, Lost Lake, First Frost, and now, Other Birds. This annual reading by a graduate of UNC Asheville is held in honor of Katherine Min, the late writer and faculty member who was a mentor to many budding writers at UNC Asheville. She died in March 2019 after a long battle with cancer.
