About the event
This reading will feature three Tolsun Books writers working in Pittsburgh, in fiction, poetry, and memoir. Each writer's recent or forthcoming book includes work borne of their place in Appalachia. Gabriel Welsch ("Groundscratchers," a collection of short stories), Brittany Hailer ("Animal You'll Surely Become," poetry and memoir), and Caitlyn Hunter ("Power in the Tongue," memoir and folktale).
Tolsun Books publishes daring, energetic books that use separate parts to construct a whole: poetry, short stories, comics poetry, hybrids, photo stories, flash memoir, and more. Tolsun Publishing proudly practices stewardship in the literary community by publishing debut and experienced authors with diverse backgrounds, licensing artwork from working artists and designers, tabling at bookfairs, presenting at literary conferences, and hosting readings.
Lately, the press has a growing list of authors in Pennsylvania, building on its early successes in Arizona and Nevada, where it is headquartered. The readers on this panel represent a range of writing happening in this region
