Kingsolver and Other Authors to Speak Oct. 2 at ASU

Sept. 20, 2012. Noted author Barbara Kingsolver, who founded the Bellwether Prize for Fiction, along with prize winners Hillary Jordan and Naomi Benaron, will be at Appalachian State University Tuesday, Oct. 2, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Broyhill Events Center’s Powers Ballroom for an informal conversation about the prize and the authors’ works.

Jordan is the author of “Mudbound” and “When She Woke,” and Benaron’s first book is “Running the Rift.” The event is sponsored by Belk Library and Information Commons and Algonquin Books in Chapel Hill. Joseph Bathanti, Appalachian English professor and the state’s new Poet Laureate, will moderate the discussion. Refreshments and a book signing will follow.
