Reading by BettyJoyce Nash

Location:

Community-Wide

Event Type(s): Literary
Organization: WriterHouse
Description: BettyJoyce Nash & Deirdra McAfee introduce Lock & Load: Armed Fiction from the University of New Mexico Press

Great stories by great American writers on a great American subject: guns.

The editors will read, discuss, amuse, and inform. Please come for snacks, wine, and especially, the food for thought.

Here’s what Roxana Robinson says about Lock & Load:

“This is a powerful, challenging and often exquisite response to our lethally dangerous gun culture. These stories reveal our complicated relationship to weapons, and offer chilling evidence of the way violence affects our contemporary consciousness.” –Roxana Robinson, author of Sparta and Cost

Here’s what Sheryl Monks says about Lock & Load:

I can think of no better way to continue the imperative conversation about guns in our culture than to call upon our finest writers to parse out the nuances of this complicated and divisive issue in a way that only great literature can. Whatever your stance on guns, this collection of carefully selected, masterful stories aims to broaden our perspectives. And that may well be what we need most in these troubling times. – Sheryl Monks, author of Monsters in Appalachia
