Author to speak at Pfeiffer

Albemarle native and author Heather Ross Miller will appear at the Pfeiffer University Friends of the Library’s Fall Event for brunch and author talk on Tuesday, 10 a.m.-noon, G.A. Pfeiffer Library, second floor, Pfeiffer University, U.S. 52 N., Misenheimer.
Miller has published numerous works of fiction, nonfiction and poetry, including “Champeen” (novel), “Gypsy with Baby” (poetry) and “Crusoe’s Island, A Story of a Writer and a Place” (memoir).
She is a recipient of the Alumni Distinguished Achievement Award from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where she earned a bachelor’s degree and an MFA in creative writing. She has also received the North Carolina Award for Literature, two fellowships from the National Endowment of the Arts, and has taught creative writing at Pfeiffer University, University of Arkansas and Washington and Lee University.
The focus of her presentation will be “the real within the imaginary,” and will center on her two most recent books, “The Creative Writing Murders,” a comic novel set at Pfeiffer College, and “Lumina: A Town of Two Voices,” a collection of narrative poems set in Badin.
Brunch begins at 10 a.m., followed at 11 a.m. by the author’s presentation and questions. The cost is $10; all proceeds benefit Friends of the Library. Contact lara.little@fsmail.pfeiffer.edu, 704-463-3353. Parking is available in front of Pfeiffer Library; copies of the author’s books will be available for sale.
