Author event with Ron Rash, author of Something Rich and Strange

Join Parnassus Books and The Porch Writer's Collective to celebrate the launch of Ron Rash's collection of short stories, Something Rich and Strange at The Skillery. There will be wine and refreshments with the author, followed by a reading and signing. Part of the proceeds from the book sales will go to The Porch Writer's Collective.About Something Rich and Strange:Something Rich and Strange showcases this acclaimed master’s artistry and craftsmanship in thirty stories culled from his previously published collections Nothing Gold Can Stay, Burning Bright, Chemistry, and The Night New Jesus Fell to Earth. Each work of short fiction demonstrates Rash’s dazzling ability to evoke the heart and soul of this land and its people—men and women inexorably tethered to the geography that defines and shapes them. Filled with suspense and myth, hope and heartbreak, told in language that flows like “shimmering, liquid poetry” (Atlanta Journal Constitution), Something Rich and Strange is an iconic work from an American literary virtuoso. About Ron Rash:Ron Rash is the author of the 2009 PEN/Faulkner finalist and New York Times bestselling novel Serena, in addition to four other prizewinning novels, including The Cove, One Foot in Eden, Saints at the River, and The World Made Straight; four collections of poems; and five collections of stories, among them Burning Bright, which won the 2010 Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, and Chemistry and Other Stories, which was a finalist for the 2007 PEN/Faulkner Award.
