Daphne Athas will read from and sign copies of her new book, Chapel Hill in Plain Sight: Notes from the Other Side of the Tracks. Through the Depression, World War II, McCarthyism, and other 20th-century milestones, Athas experienced life in the legendary Southern college town of Chapel Hill. The town was conventional and idiosyncratic, both caught up in racial and class prejudice and ahead of its time. None of this liminal world, nor the effects on its larger political and cultural forces, escapes Athas’s keen writer’s eye. Athas has published four novels (including Entering Ephesus), several nonfiction books, and a collection of poetry; she taught in the creative writing program at UNC-CH for many years. (goddesspt2)
