Join author Michelle Elvy as she reads from her cross-genre novel-in-flash, the everrumble.
Friday, September 6, 5:00 - 6:30 pm.
In the book, Elvy uses a mixture of poetry and prose. After the reading, Elvy will discuss the “art of writing small” – short fiction as an approach to storytelling, as well as her experiences with cross-genre writing.
Zettie stops talking at age seven and starts to listen -- to the worlds she finds in language and books, and to the people and places she encounters as she moves through the world. Her story is fluid, transcending geographies and time. The story is magical and beyond boundaries. A poetic imagining.
