Each outing of the new Voice Rising reading series at Flyleaf Books pairs an established author with a crop of emerging ones, with the idea that all involved will give a brief reading of unpublished material followed by a Q and A. The second edition features Randal O'Wain, who teaches creative writing at UNC-Chapel Hill and has published essays and short stories in general magazines and literary journals such as The Oxford American, Guernica, and Crazy Horse. Check out his prose piece in the online journal The Pinch, "Superman Dam Fool," for a taste. It's a nimble personal essay and meditation on Superman comics emanating from a piece of graffiti. O'Wain will be joined by Durham fiction writer and poet Michelle Dove, Chapel Hill fiction writer Larissa Wood, and Durham speculative-fiction writer Claire Allegra Sorrenson.
