NOCCA Presents Jamey Hatley and Brad Richard

The New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts will host authors Jamey Hatley and Brad Richard at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 24, in the Kirschman Artspace room on NOCCA’s Bywater campus (2800 Chartres) for the fall installment of its 2012 – 2013 Creative Reading Series.

Jamey Hatley is a Memphis native whose fiction and nonfiction have appeared in the Oxford American, among other places. She won the 2006 William Faulkner-William Wisdom Award for a novel in progress (which, we understand, is still in progress) and is an esteemed member of the MelaNated Writer’s Group.

Brad Richard is the author of several books of poetry, including Motion Studies, which won the 2010 Washington Prize, Curtain Optional, published by Press Street, and the new collection Butcher’s Sugar. He is chair of the creative writing program at Lusher High School and co-director of the New Orleans New Writers Literary Festival and the Scholastic Writing Awards of Southeast Louisiana.

A reception will follow the reading, which is free and open to the public.
