Gwen Mullins Farewell Reading

You are invited to attend a reading by our winter resident, Gwen Mullins. Gwen will be reading work she has been writing while at the Kerouac House and answering questions about her writing process.

**Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the reading will be held outside on the Kerouac House lawn. The event will be capped at 40 attendees to ensure social distancing. Patrons will be required to wear masks during the event. Those attending are asked to bring their own chairs or blankets, and to sit a minimum 6 feet apart. Patrons are welcome to bring along wine or beer to consume personally during the reading (if they desire to do so). Since the reading cannot be transferred inside because of these pandemic conditions, should the weather be inclement, the reading will be cancelled. There will also be no tours inside the Kerouac House during the event. Thank you for your cooperation while we ensure the safety of our writers and visitors.**

Gwen Mullins is an essayist, novelist, and short story writer. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in African American Review, The Bitter Southerner, PANK, The New Guard, Sixfold, descant (Frank O’Connor Award), Green Mountains Review, Numéro Cinq, and Social Justice Anthologies, among others. Gwen is currently working on her second novel as well as a short story collection. She holds an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and she works at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga as a writing consultant and tutoring coordinator.
