The prize-winning young writer Kevin Wilson (”Tunneling to the Center of the Earth”) joins us with a brilliantly inspired new novel, ”The Family Fang.” It’s ”a creative and funny story examining young lives in the process of getting skewered, all in the pursuit of art with a capital A.” It centers on a brother and sister trying to navigate their lives in a family headed by bizarre performance art parents. Critics call the novel ”part social satire, part detective story, and part plain good storytelling.” Wilson, who received the Shirley Jackson Award for his first book, lives in Tennessee and teaches at the University of the South and helps run the Seqanee Writers’ Conference. We’ll have copies of his books for sale and signing at this event.
