Tom Franklin, who was born in Mississippi and spent part of his childhood in Alabama, has been praised for his unique southern voice and his inspired storytelling abilities. His literary achievements include the Edgar Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Award, the CWA Gold Dagger Award, and a Guggenheim Fellowship. He was invited to be a writer in residence at the University of Mississippi in 2001. He and his wife, poet and essayist Beth Ann Fennelly, have since joined the faculty and enjoy life in Oxford, Mississippi.
Fennelly's first collection of poems Open House won multiple awards, and her poems have been included in numerous anthologies. As an essayist, she writes on Southern food, music, and books.
Together, the pair authored A Tilted World, a raucous, page-turning novel.
Join us September 21 for a fascinating brunch with these two authors, and help us celebrate Loveland Loves to Read.
Loveland Loves to Read has chosen Franklin's Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter for the 10th Annual Community Read.
