Lee Smith

When: Sat., April 3, 11 a.m. 2010

I first appreciated the reach of Hillsborough author Lee Smith years ago, when I was in Alaska and made the acquaintance of a young writer. When she found out I was from North Carolina, she excitedly told me her favorite author and role model was Smith, the author of numerous acclaimed works of fiction. This writer's enthusiasm made it clear that even if reviewers persist in categorizing Smith as a "regional" writer, her audience can be found anywhere fiction is read. Smith has a new title out, a collection of old and new short stories called Mrs. Darcy and the Blue-Eyed Stranger, which she will read from and sign copies of starting at 7 p.m. —David Fellerath
