Launch Party for Mary Lou Hall and Wirewalker

When his father becomes unable to keep the family afloat, Clarence is manipulated into running drugs. But he longs to be a good person, in spite of the seemingly impossible odds. Wandering through his neighborhood, Clarence meets Mona, a huge albino Great Dane. The two develop a deep bond. When he is forced to attend a dog fight as a rite of passage, Clarence realizes that Mona isn’t safe, and neither is he. Can he find a way to protect Mona? Can he survive life in Mayfair Heights and still become the person his mother wanted him to be? 
A novel about self-reliance, difficult choices, and imagination in the face of danger and isolation, Wirewalker is a masterfully written debut that blends gritty realism with moments of fantastical escape. Mary Lou Hall lives with her husband, dogs, and dreams in Richmond, Virginia. She teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University and is working on her second novel.

Dimestore: A Writer’s Life

2:Lee Smith, the 2010 Library of Virginia Literary Lifetime Achievement recipient, talks about Dimestore, her intimate memoir detailing the South she knew as she grew up, a place that in many ways has vanished. Smith‘s home was in Grundy, a small coal town in Appalachia, where her father ran the local dime store. Her parents raised her for life beyond the confines of Grundy but while Smith left Grundy her love of the people, the culture, and the stories of her birthplace remain. The 15 essays in Dimestore are in some ways an ode to the people and life of a small town but it is an ode peppered with the realities of her family’s struggle with mental illness and with an honesty and poignancy for the place that made her.
