Please join us on Sunday, October 14 at 21c Museum Hotel Nashville for an evening with author Nick White. White will be reading a selection from his new book, Sweet & Low, a collection of short stories. Tackling issues of masculinity, identity, and place, White handles both his finely rendered characters and the character of the modern American South with generosity and brilliant perception.
White burst onto the literary scene last year with his critically acclaimed debut novel, How to Survive a Summer, which the Washington Post praised as: “Tennessee Williams…transposed to the twenty-first century South.” In Sweet & Low, White returns with a gorgeous short story collection that deconstructs the core qualities of Southern fiction, exposing deeply flawed and fascinating protagonists, many exploring their sexuality and laying their hearts on the line.
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet White, hear him read a selection from Sweet & Low, and stay for the audience Q&A after. A cash bar will be available and light snacks will be provided.
