Smart Bets: Catherine Reid

Local author Catherine Reid, a literary nature writer, is the director of Warren Wilson College’s undergraduate creative writing program. Her essays, stories and poems have appeared in a number of literary reviews, and she recently published Falling Into Place: An Intimate Geography of Home. “Reid writes on issues like environmental degradation, same-sex marriage, and war and terrorism as she uses nature as a muse for new revelations, or at least a refreshed perspective, on the world around us,” says a press release. “Reid and her graceful prose present a thought-provoking perspective on contemporary social issues as well as an immersive, refreshing reading experience.” She will read at Malaprop's on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. Free.
