Author to Share Forthcoming Book


March 28, 2012



Scholar, writer and author all describe Dr. Casey Clabough who will be reading excerpts from his not yet released historical novel "Confederado: A Novel of the Americas" at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 10 in Blount Chapel. Clabough appears as part of the University's Authors on Campus Series. The event is free and open to the public.

Prior to Clabough's reading, Jennifer Coleman, who has a master of fine arts degree in creative writing from Hollins University, will read some of her poetry.

While "Confederado" is Clabough's first novel, he has written several other non-fiction works including "The Warrior's Path: Reflections Along an Ancient Route," "Gayl Jones: The Language of Voice and Freedom in her Writings," "Elements: Novels of James Dickey" and "The Art of the Magic Striptease: The Literary Layers of George Garrett." He has also published multiple articles and essays.

In addition to being a writer, Clabough is an associate professor of English at Lynchburg College, where he has taught since 2001. He is also the literature editor for "Encyclopedia Virginia" and the general editor for "James Dickey Review."

The Schoolfield House Booksellers will have copies of Clabough's previous work for sale. Following his reading, Clabough will sign his books, including "Confederado," which will be available for purchase that evening.
