1 comment

He was in town recently in a joint signing (with author Laura Lippman) for his latest novel, Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter. He'll be in town again today, October 20th, and this time he'll be joined by his writer wife.

He is Tom Franklin; she is poet Beth Ann Fennelly (pictured); and both teach at the University of Mississippi. For a joint interview with the writers, be inside Room 456 in Patterson Hall at 10:30 a.m. In the afternoon, Fennelly will also give a poetry workshop at 2:30 p.m., while Franklin conducts a fiction workshop at the same time — both events inside Patterson.

This evening, Fennelly and Franklin will read from their works in the U of M's University Center River Room. Time: 8 p.m.
