After a civil war and an epidemic have ravaged the Appalachian region, one woman has become famous for her almost mystical ability to transcribe thoughts and emotions onto paper. Part historical fiction and part post-apocalyptic saga."

Hagy is a graduate of Williams College and the University of Michigan and  has taught at the University of Virginia, the University of Michigan and the University of Wyoming She has  published four novels and four short story collections. 

Hollins professor Catherine Hankla will join Hagy. Hankla’s most recent book, Lost Places: On Losing and Finding Home, is a collection of essays on place, memory, and time and explores the question, What is home?
