‘The Georgia Review’ schedules release party for summer 2018 issue

To celebrate the release of its summer 2018 issue, The Georgia Review will host a reading by authors Julia Elliott and Ed Pavlic Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. at Cine, 234 W. Hancock Ave. Open free to the public, the event will include music by guitarist Mitchell Powers. A reception with light refreshments will follow the reading.

Elliott’s debut story collection, The Wilds, was chosen by Kirkus, BuzzFeed, Book Riot and Electric Literature as one of the best books of 2014, and it was a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice. Elliott, who holds a doctorate in English from the University of Georgia, teaches English and women’s and gender studies at the University of South Carolina in Columbia. Her short story “Hellion” appears in the new issue of The Georgia Review.

A Distinguished Research Professor in the English department and in the Institute for African American Studies at UGA, Pavlic has published 11 books. His forthcoming book, Let It Be Broke, will be published in 2020. The summer 2018 issue of The Georgia Review features a critical essay by Pavlic that offers a new framework for understanding the later work of poet Adrienne Rich.

Powers is a graduate of UGA’s music performance program, with an emphasis on classical guitar. He is also drummer and singer in the Americana rock band The Powers.
