The showcase of works by visual artist Joseph Pearson and young writers of color takes place May 25 at the YMI Cultural Center.
Events take place Thursday-Sunday, April 12-15, at UNC Asheville, Malaprop’s and the Lenoir-Rhyne University’s Asheville campus.
“Anybody can write, but to choose it as a profession? That’s a hard economic choice,” poet Glenis Redmond muses. “I think people were making those choices, no matter what, but it was harder choice in the mountains.”
The show takes place at Firestorm Books & Coffee on Friday, Feb. 3.
