Clayton State University’s popular Visiting Writer’s Reading Series is returning for another semester under the direction of Associate Professor of English Dr. Brigitte Byrd.
The first reader of the spring semester will be young adult fiction author Terra Elan McVoy, who will be appearing on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 6:30 p.m., in room L-200 of the Clayton State Library.
McVoy has held a variety of jobs centered around reading and writing, from managing an independent children’s bookstore, to teaching writing classes, and even answering fan mail for Captain Underpants. She lives and works in the same Atlantaneighborhood where her young adult novels After the Kiss, Being Friends with Boys,
are set. She is also the author of The Summer of Firsts and Lasts
(forthcoming May 2013). To learn more, visit TerraElan.com and follow her on Twitter at @TerraMcVoy.
As is the case with all of the Visiting Writer’s Reading Series, the event is free and open to the public, and will last for about an hour, with a 20-minute reading followed by a Q&A and book signing.
