Reader Meet Writer Recap: Lee Smith

Posted By Nicki Leone, Tuesday, May 5, 2020

Lee Smith's appearance on Reader Meet Writer for Blue Marlin (an Okra Pick book) drew an audience of over 450 readers. The event is now available on video.  SIBA member stores are invited to embed the video on their own websites and use it in their own marketing efforts.

Born in the small coal-mining town of Grundy, Virginia, Lee Smith began writing stories at the age of nine and selling them for a nickel apiece. Since then, she has written seventeen works of fiction, including Fair and Tender Ladies, Oral History, and, most recently, Guests on Earth. She has received many awards, including the North Carolina Award for Literature and an Academy Award in Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Her novel The Last Girls was a New York Times bestseller as well as winner of the Southern Book Critics Circle Award. She lives in Hillsborough, North Carolina, with her husband, the writer Hal Crowther.
