Charles Dodd White will visit City Lights Bookstore on Friday, June 27th at 6:30 p.m. to read from his new novel. A Shelter of Others tells of the families we’re born into, the families we make for ourselves, and how tightly woven are the ties that bind. His work has often been compared to the writing of William Gay and Daniel Woodrell. White has also written the novel, Lambs of Men and a short story collection titled, Sinners of Sanction County. He is the recipient of the Jean Ritchie Fellowship, an individual artist grant from the North Carolina Arts Council. He currently lives with his wife and boys in Candler, NC.
