Announcement: Writer Xhenet Aliu for Thirsty Tome 2013
Randall Library is thrilled to announce Xhenet Aliu as our featured writer for this year’s event.
Xhenet graduated from the UNCW Creative Writing MFA Program in 2007 and she is the winner of the 2012 Prairie Schooner Book Prize for her collection of short stories, Domesticated Wild Things, which will be published by the University of Nebraska Press this fall. Xhenet will read a selection of her work, and then author and Creative Writing faculty member Bekki Lee (Bobcat and Other Stories, Algonquin Books 2013) will conduct an interview with the writer. Additionally, current MFA students will read selections of their poems, fiction, and creative nonfiction. Refreshments will be served.
