Novelist Josephine Humphreys to read work at Coastal Carolina University

The distinguished novelist Josephine Humphreys will read from her work on Thursday, April 24 at 3 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts at Coastal Carolina University. The event, sponsored by Coastal's Waccamaw Center for Cultural and Historical Studies, is free and open to the public.

"Jo Humphreys is one of America's leading writers," said Charles Joyner, director of the center. "She is internationally famous and has an especially strong following in Europe and Australia."

Humphries is a native of Charleston, S.C., and has received the award in literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Her most recent novels are "Nowhere Else on Earth" and "The Fireman's Fair." Her first novel, "Dreams of Sleep," won the Ernest Hemingway award for first fiction. Her second novel, "Rich in Love," was made into a major motion picture starring Albert Finney.

According to novelist Pat Conroy, "Every time Josephine Humphreys writes a book, literature seems to happen."

A reception and book signing will follow the reading. Copies of all her books will be available for purchase.
