Notable authors to read from novels in progress

Written by 

Two award-winning authors, Dawn Gilchrist-Young and Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle, who are also English teachers at Swain County High School, will each read from their novels, which are currently in progress, at 7 p.m. on Aug. 28 at the Jackson County Library.

Gilchrist-Young will read from a draft novel that is based on her prize-winning short story, “The Tender Branch.” That story won Gilchrist-Young the 2011 High School Teachers Writing Award from the Norman Mailer Center, co-sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English.

Clapsaddle will read from her novel-in-progress, Sololoneet, which won the 2012 Morning Star Award for Creative Fiction from the Native American Literature Symposium and the Charles Redd Center for Western Studies.
