THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27

THE SO & SO READING SERIES

First of all, if you haven't seen Southern Accent, the Nasher's revolutionary exhibit on Southern identity in contemporary art, go. Even if you don't usually visit museums, go. Even if you aren't from the South—but especially if you are—go. In fact, go Thursday, when the museum partners with the So & So Reading Series to activate Southern Accent with its catalytic counterpart: words. In a place so prominently defined by its speech, this exhibit uniquely demands to be talked about. So & So's Chris Tonelli and co-curator Margaret Chapman have rounded up a stellar lineup to do it in style. It includes Durham's Lauren Hunter, whose Human Achievements is forthcoming on Tonelli's poetry press, Birds, LLC; Odie Lindsey, a combat veteran whose war fiction has been featured in Best American Short Stories; Joanna Ruocco, an innovative fiction writer and associate professor at Wake Forest University; and the Pittsboro-born, Brooklyn-based Sampson Starkweather, an entertaining poet whose The First 4 Books of Sampson Starkweather was also published by Birds, LLC. Show up an hour before the reading for a free highlights tour of the exhibit to get you into a Southern frame of mind. —Brian Howe
