DAVID HICKS with ANDREA DUNLOP & DONNA MISCOLTA
Our July reading series begins again after our city’s 4th of July festivities and on a slightly more contemplative note. Colorado writer David Hicks reads from his novel in stories, White Plains (Conundrum Press), which is set high in the Continental Divide in the days after 9/11.
“For the single man, in this case dear Flynn in White Plains, it can be a rocky road to climb toward grace; and David Hicks shows us every glorious bump on the way... in this glowing set of stories, a book that reads like late night messages sent from a friend. This is an honest look at a man moving from punishing bad faith toward something he finally hopes is good.” -Ron Carlson.
David Hicks is based in Denver, where he is a professor at Regis University and co-directs the Mile High MFA in Creative Writing. Also on tonight’s program are two Seattle writers: Andrea Dunlop, author of Losing the Light (Atria) and of the novella, Broken Bay (available as an ebook, including on our website) and Donna Miscolta, author of Hola and Goodbye: Una Familia in Stories (Carolina Wren Press), which just won an Independent Publisher Award Gold Medal for Regional Fiction.
