Episode 19: Readings from the Summer Supper & Book Club


Summer Supper & Book Club

This summer, PEN/Faulkner’s Summer Supper & Book Club met weekly for seven weeks at Hill Center where we discussed books by area authors Susan Richards Shreve (Plum and Jaggers)Danielle Evans (Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self)David A. Taylor (Soul of a People: The WPA Writers’ Project Uncovers Depression America)Felicia Pride (Patterson Heights), Derrick Weston Brown (Wisdom Teeth), and David Ebenbach (Between Camelots). We had 15 students enrolled in the course, and each week they came prepared to dine and discuss the book of the week. The authors joined us to answer questions and grab a bite, and they were kind enough to let us record short readings of their work. Thus, Episode 19 is a variety pack that includes the participating authors except, unfortunately, David A. Taylor (we had recording difficulties on the day of his visit).
