2012 Antioch Writers' Workshop Faculty Readings: Trudy Krisher

Aug 5, 2012

Last month the week-long Antioch Writers' Workshop was held in Yellow Springs.  The workshop's faculty members, all published authors, held nightly readings at Antioch University Midwest during that week and for the next month we'll be bringing excerpts from some of those readings here on WYSO Weekend.  Our first reading is from Trudy Krisher, an award-winning author and assistant professor at Sinclair Community College.  This year she served as the instructor for the young writers attending the workshop.  Here she reads from her novel Kinship, which is set in a South Georgia trailer park in the 1960s and tells the story of a young girl named Pert Wilson through the voices of her neighbors.
