LEXINGTON Ky. (Oct. 15, 2014) — Nationally bestselling author Silas House will give a free public reading at 5 p.m. on Oct. 21, in Transylvania University’s Carrick Theater.

House serves as the NEH Chair of Appalachian Literature at Berea College and is a faculty member of Spalding University’s MFA in Creative Writing program.  He has also been a commentator for NPR’s “All Things Considered.”

“Silas House is one of the most important and most versatile writers working today,” said Maurice Manning, a Transylvania professor and writer in residence. “His is a broad vision and deeply humane. He is at the forefront of understanding, articulating and defending the Appalachian region. It will be an honor to have Silas visit our campus community.”
