Event description

Description

The Institute for the Arts and Humanities will be hosting an evening to celebrate emerging writers. The Institute will create a French-style literary café to raise awareness for both the Crook's Corner Book Prize and local literary community.

The fourth annual Crook’s Corner Book Prize, which will honor a debut novel set in the American South, will be awarded in January 2017. The Prize is intended to encourage emerging writers, whether published by established publishing houses, by small independent publishers, or self-published. The Book Prize also is inspired by the famous literary cafés of Paris. The Deux Magots, the Flore, and Brasserie Lipp, for example, have for many years awarded prestigious writers’ prizes.

We plan to have a panel of established writers who will field questions from attendees. Following the Q&A, attendees will convene in small groups with panelists to discuss various topics. There will be plenty of French café-style food and beverages!
