Visiting authors to present for Writers Series
Two authors will give readings of their work Tuesday as part of the A.E. Stringer Visiting Writers Series.
Julia Watts, a Lambda Literary Award-winning writer of young-adult novel “Finding H.F.” while also being the author of dozens of novels, and Lila Quintero Weaver, who was named a finalist for the Small Press Expo 2012 Ignatz Award for Promising New Talent, will read their works.
Watt’s latest young adult novel, “Secret City”, is set in Oak Ridge, Tenn., during the Manhattan Project. She has received grants from the Kentucky Foundation for Women, and her fiction has appeared in a variety of publications, including The American voice, Brain/Child, The Journal of Kentucky Studies, and Now and Then.
Watt’s holds a Master’s of Fine Arts in creative writing from Spalding University and a Master’s of Art in English from the University of Louisville. A native of southeastern Kentucky, she serves as a mentor in Murray State University’s low-residency Master’s of Arts program and teaches at South College in Knoxville, Tenn.
Weaver was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1955. She immigrated to the United States when she was five years old with her family and spent her school years in a small Alabama town where she absorbed the material that makes up her illustrated memoir, “Darkroom: A Memoir in Black and White.”
A graduate of the University of Alabama, Weaver was named a finalist for 2012 Cybils Award in the Graphic Novels category.
The readings are scheduled at 8 p.m. in Smith Hall Room 154.
