A couple of months ago, Rachel Hall gave a reading from her wonderful new book, Heirlooms, at Daniel Boone Regional Library here in Columbia. There was, literally, not a spare seat in the house. The capacity crowd listened, rapt, as Rachel read. We're delighted to welcome this talented author back to Columbia to share her stories with those who were unlucky enough to miss out last time.
Heirlooms, (BkMk Press) was selected by Marge Piercy for the G.S. Sharat Chandra book prize. Hall’s recent work appears in Natural Bridge, Bellingham Review, Crab Orchard Review, Midwestern Gothic, and Lilith, which awarded her the 2015 fiction prize. She teaches creative writing and literature at the State University of New York at Geneseo, where she holds two Chancellor’s Awards for Excellence—one in teaching and one for her creative work. We're so happy to welcome Rachel to Unbound!
