Mark Your Calendars for These Writer Appearances

What do a Southern literary icon, a sci-fi/fantasy legend, and a Pulitzer Prize winner have in common? They’re all coming to Georgia Perimeter College this fall, as the Writers Institute and its campus and community partners welcome Lee Smith, Brandon Sanderson, and Rick Bragg.
 
Lee Smith will appear as part of  the Chattahoochee Review’s 30th Anniversary Reading Series, sponsored by the Fellowship of Southern Authors and the GPC Foundation. Smith is the author of 11 novels, including her most recent, On Agate Hill, which Kirkus Reviews calls “an authentic American saga, bittersweet as an Appalachian ballad, peopled with wonderfully vivid characters, so brilliantly constructed we never even notice the quilt-like artfulness of her design.”
