Hopkinsville Community College’s Round Table Reading Series will present its first reading of the spring semester at noon on Wednesday, January 29 at the campus Library located inside the Rotary Club of Hopkinsville Learning Resource Center. Joanna Grisham and Charles Booth will visit HCC from Austin Peay State University to read from their current writing projects.
Joanna Grisham, also known as Joey, grew up east of Nashville, where she spent a lot of time playing make-believe with her imaginary friends. She has degrees in communication from Vol-State Community College and APSU, as well as an M.A. in English from APSU, and an MFA in creative writing from Georgia College. Her work has appeared in Reunion: The Dallas Review, Mayday Magazine, and Trop. She lives in Clarksville with her wife, Jenny, a librarian. Joey teaches part-time, so she can stay home with her one-year-old daughter, Lennon. She still spends a lot of time playing make-believe.
Charles Booth’s fiction has appeared in or is forthcoming in The Greensboro Review, The Minnesota Review, The Southampton Review, The Pinch, Alligator Juniper, storySouth, and Pithead Chapel. He lives in Tennessee, with his wife, Danica, and his son, Reynolds.
The event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be served.
