The book club discussions are part of the Laurette LePrevost Writers Symposium. Drawing inspiration from life in the Appalachian Mountains, both in the past and present, Rash has authored multiple prizewinning and bestselling novels including Serena, Above the Waterfall, The Cove, One Foot in Eden, Saints at the River, and The World Made Straight. He has won numerous awards and has twice been a PEN/Faulkner finalist. His short story collection, Burning Bright, won the 2010 Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award. He has received the O. Henry Prize twice and is a professor of Appalachian Cultural Studies at Western Carolina University. The Savannah Morning News has written that in “every Rash book, the reader is treated to countless moments of stunning illumination on the human condition.” More information about his work is available at the author’s website:
