It's Monday, which means we have another author announcement for you. Today we're delighted to announce that acclaimed author Steve Yarborugh will be joining us in Columbia on April 21, 2018.
Steve is the widely-acclaimed author of ten books for which he’s received numerous awards, including the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters Award for Fiction, the California Book Award, the Richard Wright and the Robert Penn Warren Awards. He has also been a PEN/Faulkner finalist. His work has been published in several foreign languages, including Dutch, Japanese and Polish, and in a number of other countries. Yarbrough currently teaches at Emerson College and lives in Stoneham, MA with his wife Ewa.
Steve will be joining us to discuss his electrifying new novel, THE UNMADE WORLD, which will be published in January 2018. Here's what Richard Ford had to say about it: "The Unmade World is tone perfect, skillfully constructed and consummately realized. It's the work of an extraordinary novelist. I'm fortunate to have read it."
The son of Mississippi Delta cotton farmers, Steve is an aficionado of jazz and bluegrass music, which he plays on guitar, mandolin and banjo, often after midnight.
