October 26, 2023, 5-7 PM,
Asheville Art Museum

We will be highlighting art featured in the current issue and hope some of the artists will be able to join us to talk about their work. The AAM also houses, and has generously let us use other artwork in previous issues.

Erin Miller Reid, the 2022 Doris Betts Fiction Contest winner, will read an excerpt from her winning story, and Nancy Swanson will read her second place poem from the 2022 James Applewhite Poetry Prize contest, both published in this year’s print issue. Also reading: Lockie Hunter, who has an essay forthcoming in NCLR Online Fall 2023 (and essays in the Fall 2022 and Winter 2023 issues, too).

Please join us for light refreshments, artwork, and to celebrate the 2023 issue!
