Join the Lee County Literacy Coalition and the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities for a reading by Marlin Barton, author of Pasture Art.
Pasture Art is a collection of stories set in nearby towns in the Alabama Black Belt, and explores the history, culture, and human spirit of the people who live there, and those that came before them and were shaped by the same rich and corrupted geography.
Marlin Barton has published two collections of short stories, The Dry Well and Dancing by the River, and two novels, A Broken Thing and The Cross Garden. His stories have appeared in a variety of journals and anthologies, including Shenandoah, The Southern Review, The Sewanee Review, Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards, and The Best American Short Stories. Barton is the 2016 winner of the Truman Capote Prize for short fiction by an Alabama writer.
The event is free, open to the public, and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities at Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street, Auburn. For more information on the program, call 334-844-4903 or visit www.auburn.edu/cah.
