Event Description
Southern Storyteller Series: David Joy

Folkmoot, Blue Ridge Books and the Haywood County Public Library present the Southern Storytellers Supper Series, bringing southern culture and regional authors and musicians together for educational evenings of discussion, food and fun.




David Joy is the author of the Edgar nominated novel Where All Light Tends To Go (Putnam, 2015), as well as the novels The Weight Of This World (Putnam, 2017) and The Line That Held Us (Putnam, 2018). He is also the author of the memoir Growing Gills: A Fly Fisherman's Journey (Bright Mountain Books, 2011), which was a finalist for the Reed Environmental Writing Award and the Ragan Old North State Award.

He is the recipient of an artist fellowship from the North Carolina Arts Council. His latest short stories and essays have appeared in Time, The New York Times Magazine, Garden & Gun, and The Bitter Southerner.

In addition to his writing, David enjoys hunting, fishing, his dog and nature. If you’ve read his fiction, non-fiction and articles this would not surprise you. Come hear more about how these traditional aspects of mountain life have influenced and found their way into his writing.




Limited seating is available and a meal is included. Please purchase Southern Storytellers Series tickets in advance by calling 828.452.2997 or purchasing electronically, at Folkmoot.org. Parking is available in the back of the Folkmoot building for year-round events.
