Sewanee books!


Today, my book haul from Sewanee Writers’ Conference arrived by mail, and I immediately stacked them for a photo so I could share with y’all the fantastic books I’m looking forward to reading the remainder of this year.

I’ve listed them below in the order they’re in on the stack, with asterisks next to members of my workshop group (and double asterisks for my faculty), and I’ve linked you to the books online so you can order copies of your own.

And you should. Because these folks are amazing!


*Kelly Luce, Three Scenarios In Which Hana Sasaki Grows a Tail


**Adrianne Harun, A Man Came Out of a Door In the Mountain


Michael Gerhard Martin, Easiest If I Had a Gun


*Jesse Goolsby, I’d Walk With My Friends If I Could Find Them


*Lindsey Drager, The Sorrow Proper


*Caleb Ludwick, The First Time She Fell


**Adrianne Harun, The King of Limbo


Tony Earley, Here We Are In Paradise

What_Happened_Here_coversunshineaway_detailAlso, not pictured here are two other books related to Sewanee that I’d gotten prior to the conference: my friend *Bonnie ZoBell’s What Happened Here, which I’d bought at a reading Bonnie did here in Portland a while back; and M.O. Walsh’s My Sunshine Away, which he workshopped at a previous Sewanee Writers’ Conference and which my mother-in-law (unaware of the connection) had gifted me shortly before I learned I’d been accepted to the conference this year.

I write fiction and teach college writing and literature. I'm the author of the story collection There Is No Other Way to Worship Them, the novel Hagridden, and the flash fiction chapbooks Box Cutters and Where There Is Ruin.
