Kelcey Parker, author of Liliane’s Balcony: A Novella of Fallingwater (Rose Metal Press, 2013), will give a reading at 8 p.m. Thursday, March 6 in UNC Asheville’s Highsmith University Union, Grotto. The event is free and open to the public, and includes light refreshments.

Liliane’s Balcony, a multi-voiced novella-in-flash, was described by Booklist as “an inventive novella hybrid, a mix of prose and poetry, past and present, heartbreak and humor.” Parker’s collection of short stories, For Sale by Owner (Kore Press, 2011), won the 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Award in Short Fiction and was a finalist for the 2012 Best Books of Indiana. Parker is the recipient of an Individual Artist's Grant from the Indiana Arts Commission and a Promise Award from the Sustainable Arts Foundation. Parker is the creative writing director at Indiana University South Bend, and her fiction has appeared in numerous literary journals, including Notre Dame Review, Indiana Review, Thirdcoast, Rediver, Santa Monica Review, Bellingham Review, Image and Western Humanities Review.

This event is sponsored by the UNC Asheville Literature Club, and UNC Asheville’s chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the international English honor society. For more information contact Kirk Boyle, UNC Asheville literature lecturer, at 828.250.3915 or
