ULM to host a reading by local author April 14

The University of Louisiana at Monroe’s English department will host a reading from author and north Louisiana native William Caverlee at 7 p.m. on April 14 in the Hemphill Airway and Computer Science Building auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Caverlee will read from his recently published book “Amid the Swirling Ghosts,” a collection of literary essays and feature stories from throughout his life. The topics range from William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor to “Pistol” Pete Maravich and Bonnie and Clyde, with many more subjects in between.

Caverlee’s writings have appeared in several publications including “The Christian Science Monitor,” “The Cimarron Review” and “Louisiana Literature.” He’s also a contributing writer to “The Oxford American.”
