Appalachian Lecture Series with Ron Rash, New York Times Best Selling Author
when: Thu, September 12, 2013
where: Harold And Jean Lambert Recital Hall
time: 7:00pm
Rash, an award-winning poet and novelist from western North Carolina, will open the  Appalachian series.  A book signing will follow the presentation, and copies of Rash’s books will be available for purchase from Southland Books.
            He is the author of the 2009 PEN/Faulkner Finalist and New York Times bestselling novel Serena, which is being adapted for film. The film will debut in September and stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.
Rash has also written three other prize-winning novels, One Foot in Eden, Saints at the River and The World Made Straight; three collections of poetry; and four collections of short stories, among them Burning Bright, which won the 2010 Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, and Chemistry and Other Stories, which was a finalist for the 2007 PEN/Faulkner Award.
A recipient of the O. Henry Prize, Rash holds the John Parris Chair in Appalachian Studies at Western Carolina University.
The vision behind the Appalachian Lecture Series was “to celebrate the culture of the Appalachian region by featuring those researchers and writers who captured the unique history and story of the people and the land,” said Dr. Susan Schneibel, professor of comparative literature at Maryville College. “For over two decades, the series has invited artists, scholars, musicians, writers and historians to the College each fall to give presentations on the heritage, as well as the future of the region.”
