Just an update on the previous announcement concerning the Great Smokies Writing Program Writers at Home series Readings at Malaprop's Sunday. Jeannette Cabanis-Brewin will be reading from her new chapbook, Patriate, just out from Longleaf Press. It won the Longleaf chapbook prize for 2007, so it should be a real treat for all!
