Tuesday, September 16, 2014, 7 p.m.
Writer Clifford Garstang
Providence United Methodist Church
2810 Providence Road, Charlotte, N.C., 28211

Clifford Garstang began writing fiction after a career in international law with one of the world’s largest law firms and with the World Bank in Washington, D.C. His first book, the story collection In an Uncharted Country (Press 53, 2009), has been described as “impeccably written, sumptuously imagined, and completely enchanting,” and his second book, the novel in stories What the Zhang Boys Know (Press 53, 2012), which won the 2013 Library of Virginia Award in Fiction, was called “a wonderful and haunting book.” His work has appeared in Bellevue Literary Review, Blackbird, Cream City Review, The Tampa Review, and elsewhere, and has received Distinguished Mention in the Best American Series. He was a 2010 Walter E. Dakin Fellow at the Sewanee Writers’ Conference. In addition to degrees in Philosophy, English, Law, and Public Administration, he holds an MFA from Queens University of Charlotte. He is the co-founder and editor of Prime Number Magazine and currently lives near Staunton, Virginia.

Sunday, September 21, 2 p.m.
Charlotte Writers’ Club-North presents: A Reading from The Widows’ Handbook

The Warehouse Performing Arts Center
9216-A Westmoreland Road, Cornelius, N.C.

The Widows’ Handbook: Poetic Reflections on Grief and Survival is a collection of poems and short prose by more than 80 women of all ages and backgrounds, with a foreword by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Join CWCN as we celebrate the strength and character of these women who share their sorrow, loneliness and other strong feelings of love lost. The emphasis is coping and going forward. Local writers will join three anthology contributors from North Carolina – Rebecca Schenck, Nancy Womack and Connie Fisher – to read selected works from the anthology.

Saturday, October 18, 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Workshop with poet and author Alice Osborn:
“Market Yourself Like a Rock Star Author”

Tuesday, October 21, 2014, 7 p.m.
Writer Cynthia Lewis
Providence United Methodist Church
2810 Providence Road, Charlotte, N.C., 28211

Cynthia Lewis graduated summa cum laude from Ohio State University in 1974.  She then moved to Cambridge, Mass., to pursue her Ph.D. in English and American Literature and Language. There, she studied early modern dramatists including Middleton, Webster, and Shakespeare. She was a teaching fellow at Harvard University and, in her last year of graduate studies, the recipient of a Whiting Fellowship. In 1980, Dr. Lewis accepted her current teaching post at Davidson College, where she now holds the Charles A. Dana Professorship of English. In the early 1980s, she developed and taught a course on advanced composition, which in subsequent years evolved into “Creative Nonfiction.” During her sabbatical in 2000, Lewis investigated the mystery of Eric Rudolph, the alleged serial bomber rumored then to be at large in the North Carolina mountains. This research led to her first published nonfiction article in 2001 in Southern Cultures. Since then, Lewis has published articles on a wide variety of topics, from female bodybuilders to the Kim Thomas murder investigation in Charlotte, N.C.  She has also published a good deal of personal narrative, including a piece in Charlotte Magazine about moonlighting, during another sabbatical, as a bartender.
