John Pritchard Signing for "Sailing to Alluvium", Sept 18

09/18/2014 6:00 pm
 
John Pritchard Reading & Signing for 
SAILING TO ALLUVIUM 
Thurs, Sept 18 6pm at Subterranean

  

  
 
 
 
Profane anti-hero Junior Ray returns in John Pritchard’s third novel Sailing to Alluvium.
 
In their new adventure, Junior Ray and his sidekick Voyd Mudd have become "diktectives" to stop the murderous activities of a semi-secret, lethal organization of Southern women, the Aunty Belles, headed by Miss Attica Rummage. Author John Pritchard's third book, following 2005’s Junior Ray and 2008’s The Yazoo Blues, is another brilliant, bumbling burlesque with an unforgettable cast of characters deeply rooted in the Mississippi Delta, a place both real and imaginary. The novel revolves around obsessions, underneath which lies the dark history of a class conflict that existed in the Deep South, not among black and white but between the white "haves" and the white "have-nots."
 
John Pritchard grew up in the Mississippi Delta, a place of dark and elemental myth that inspired him to write. He currently lives in Memphis, where he has taught college-level English—often in knickers—for most of the last thirty-two years.
 
Copies of SAILING TO ALLUVIUM will be available for purchase and signing at the event.  If you are unable to attend the event but would like a signed copy just let us know!

ST. LOUIS -- British author Jeanette Winterson has been named the recipient of the 2014 Saint Louis Literary Award.  Sponsored by the Saint Louis University Library Associates, the award recognizes a living writer with a substantial body of work available in English that has enriched our literary heritage by deepening our insight into the human condition and by expanding the scope of our compassion.

“In book after book, Jeanette Winterson’s magical storytelling and electrifying language spark that fundamental source of all empathy: our imagination” said Philip Boehm, chair of the Literary Award Committee responsible for the selection.

The Saint Louis Literary Award has been presented nearly every year since 1967. Past winners include George Plimpton, William Styron, Chinua Achebe, Joan Didion and Mario Vargas Llosa.

Ms. Winterson was chosen from a long list of candidates nominated by the Library Associates and invited writers, which was then narrowed down by a seven-member selection committee. In addition to Boehm, a local translator and founder of Upstream Theater, the committee includes:

•    Saher Alam (Novelist and professor of creative writing at Saint Louis University)
•    David Cassens (Dean of Libraries, Saint Louis University—ex officio)
•    Lisette Dennis (Board Member, Saint Louis University Library Associates)
•    Boo McLoughlin (Chair, Saint Louis University Library Associates—ex officio)
•    Richard Newman (Poet and Editor of River Styx)
•    Kelly von Plonski (Owner, Subterranean Books)

This year’s award will be presented on September 23.  For event and ticket information, please contact the University Libraries Administrative Office at 314-977-3100 or email Donna Neely at

About Jeanette Winterson

Born in Manchester, England, Jeanette Winterson OBE* was adopted by Pentecostal parents and was raised to be a missionary. This did and didn't work out. Discovering early the power of books, she left home at 16 to live in a Mini and get on with her education. After graduating from Oxford University, she worked for a while in the theatre and published her first novel at 25. Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is based on her own upbringing but using herself as a fictional character. She scripted the novel into a BAFTA-winning BBC drama. Twenty-seven years later she revisited that material in the bestselling memoir, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? Winterson has written 10 novels for adults, as well as children's books, non-fiction and screenplays. She writes regularly for theGuardian. She lives in the Cotswolds in a wood and in Spitalfields London.  She believes that art is for everyone and it is her mission to prove it.
