To celebrate the release of its new reversible, flippable fall/winter 2018 double issue, The Georgia Review will host a reading by authors Camille T. Dungy and Bob Hicok at 7 p.m. on Jan. 17 at Cine, located at 234 West Hancock Ave.
The event, which will include music by local artist JoJo Glidewell, is open free to the public. A reception with light refreshments will follow the reading.
Dungy is the author of the 2017 essay collection Guidebook to Relative Strangers: Journeys into Race, Motherhood, and History, which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. She is a professor at Colorado State University. Her essay “Is All Writing Environmental Writing?” appears in the fall issue of The Georgia Review.
Hicok is the author of several poetry collections, most recently Words for Empty and Words for Full, and Elegy Owed, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. He is currently teaching at Virginia Tech. The winter 2018 issue of The Georgia Review features two new poems by Hicok: “Saving a life” and “I keep a weather station in my head.”
The Georgia Review’s fall issue offers a look at the changing nature of environmental writing in the age of the Anthropocene. The winter issue showcases new works of fiction in a feature titled “Here, There, Then, Now: Stories from Six Worlds.” Both are bound together in a double issue, which includes new work from nearly 50 writers as well as two full art portfolios, and will be for sale at a promotional rate at the event. Books by Dungy and Hicok will also be available.
This event is funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. ASL interpretation will be provided.
