Jericho Brown, one of five winners of the 80th annual Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, a juried prize that recognizes how literature can advance ideas about race, culture, ethnicity and shared humanity, will be visiting Louisville this week. He will be visiting Central High School for a lecture and Master Class with creative writing students and teachers. Then Mr. Brown will kick off the first InKY of the season with Louisville novelist, Kirby Gann.
The InKY reading series usually takes place at The Bardstown, but will be at the Local Speed for this round to accommodate a larger crowd. There will be no open mic.
The Local Speed is located at 822 E. Market Street.

From the Louisville Literary Arts
Sign up for a query letter workshop on Saturday, January 9, from 9:30 to 11:30 at PYRO Gallery
“Mastering Your Query,” will be an informative, participative and productive query-letter workshop with literary agent, Alice Speilburg. Alice will discuss the structure of a query letter, tricks to improve it and tactics to avoid. Group members will write (or revise) a query letter for a book, and will receive in-class instruction and peer critiques. The goal of this workshop is to help participants create a polished query letter they’ll be proud to send to agents and publishers.
