Fred Chappell - 'A Shadow All of Light' (off-site event)

It would take quite a while to list all the awards Fred Chappell has received, among them NC Poet Laureate from 1997 - 2002 and two-time World Fantasy Award winner.  We're delighted to welcome back this poet and novelist on Tuesday, April 12, at 7 pm with his latest novel, A Shadow All of Light.  He has a deft touch for comedy and for capers, and his witty, elegant prose shows a poet’s deep love for words.  Shadow is a picaresque tale of Falco, an apprentice in the shadow trade in the lushly imagined Italianate city of Tardocco. Here, shadows are stolen, bought, and sold, and a person can surrender their shadow and don a different one for a special purpose.  Under his master's tutelage, Falco grows from country bumpkin to a roguish shadow.  
This program will be at St David's School (3400 White Oak Rd., Raleigh, NC 27609) in their Performing Arts Center.  CLick here for a map of St. David's.
As Fred Chappell taught at UNC-Greensboro for over 40 years, we think more than a few former students will be stopping by to say 'hi'.

Farewell, I'm Bound to Leave You is rich with the music of the Southern mountains and the stories of their people.
