I have a very clear memory of writing Patricia C. Wrede a letter when I was about 9 years old. Totally consumed by her Enchanted Forest series, I passed many a childhood hour alongside her heroine, Princess Cimorene, and her slapdash group of adventuring friends. Writing Ms. Wrede about my enthusiasm for her endless imagination and...

Here's a thought: Rather than celebrate the Ides of March the old-fashioned way this year, why not join Loose Change Magazine's revelry over at the Highland Ballroom? WonderRoot's literary magazine is back with a vengeance (sorry ... I couldn't resist) and celebrating the release of its third issue with an evening of readings, raffles, and dancing. Listen to Floyd Hall's interview with Managing... | more...

Since late last year, I've carried Cynthia Arrieu-King's collection People Are Tiny in Paintings of China at the Vouched table - it's a brilliant, multifaceted collection that addresses the conflict between her own heritage and the culture she was raised within. It's always really exciting to hear one of the authors represented at Vouched read their...

Over the past few years, Ivy Hall and SCAD's writing program have brought some real heavyweights to the city (Chuck Klosterman, Andre Dubus III, and Sandra Beasley, to name a few). With their new Potlatch series, Ivy Hall and SCAD draw their focus inside the perimeter and bring Atlanta's literary talent center stage. The first of these readings will take place this Friday evening, with readings... | more...

There's a flurry of literary talent descending on Atlanta this week! You may have read a bit about What's New in Poetry's hosting of poets Heather Christle, Chris DeWeese, and Mark Leidner on Thursday already. Equally impressive and exciting events will be hosted by LostintheLetters and the Little Shop of Stories during the week.

I'm excited to return to the Highland Ballroom for this year's winners to be announced, share a slice with our readers, spread the word about some books I like, and watch a mini-bout of Write Club Atlanta.

When approaching the New Year there are two schools of thought: those who carouse and those who reform. This weekend each methodology will have a chance to shine. So before you pack away the tinsel, holly, and sequins - take a look into these two events and pick your approach.

What an ideal week to curl up in your pj's with that new book you were gifted- it is quiet on Atlanta's literary front this week. Don't fret- next week is full of literary promise.

If, for some sad reason, you were denied the joy of a good read this holiday season, there are plenty of local bookstores around the city for you to treat yourself. Odds are you've earned it.

Thursday's literary events share a common theme: female empowerment. It can't be denied: Cliterati Open No-Mic returns at Charis, Bound to Be Read will host a discussion of Natasha Trethewey's Native Guard, and HydeATL and Team Luis present the second annual collection of Atlanta's Bad Bitches at the Star Bar. http://www.facebook.com/events/395376370542560/

>> ArtsATL interviews Agnes Scott professor Amber Dermont about her new novel The Starboard Sea. The novel has been getting some serious praise, not the least of which includes two reviews from the New York Times. Janet Maslin says, "It is a rich, quietly artful novel that is bound for deep water, with questions of beauty, power and spiritual navigation as its main concerns."
