Spring Hill College to host book discussion with Michael Knight

Fri, 11/02/2007 (All day)

MOBILE – Friends of the Spring Hill College Library, along with the Alabama Humanities Foundation, will sponsor a book discussion with Michael Knight about his book “The Holiday Season” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14 at Stewartfield, located on the college campus. The author will be introduced and interviewed by Watt Key, a fiction writer from the Mobile area.

“The Holiday Season” and its companion piece, “Love at the End of the Year,” are hilarious and heartbreaking ruminations on the nature of family, the power of love, and a particularly complicated time of the year. In “The Holiday Season,” the Posey men are still trying to figure out how to be a family three years after the death of the wife and mother who bound them together.

Knight is the author of the award-winning novel, “Divining Rod,” and two collections of short fiction, “Dogfight and Other Stories” and “Goodnight, Nobody.” His stories have appeared in many publications including The New Yorker, Esquire, The Paris Review, and Southern Review. Knight is an Alabama native and teaches creative writing at the University of Tennessee.

Refreshments will be served. A donation of $3 is suggested. For more information, call (251) 380-3870.
