Writers in Performance Hosts Texas Fiction Writer

Author of the just published novel, That Demon Life, Lowell Mick White, will read and discuss his work at 7 p.m., Thursday, October 15 at Lone Star College-Montgomery Library.

White’s talent as a fiction writer has been affirmed by publication in more than two dozen of the nation’s most respected literary journals.  In 1998, he was awarded the Dobie-Paisano Fellowship by the University of Texas and the Texas Institute of Letters.

In 2008, White’s collection of short stories, Long Time Ago Good, was published by Slough Press.

A long-time Texas, White lived in Austin for 25 years, where he says he made a living working at various times as a cab driver, shade tree salesman and an Internal Revenue Service bureaucrat.

Currently pursuing his Ph.D. at Texas A & M University, White specializes in creative writing and regional literatures.  He also teaches creative writing and composition at the university.

The event includes a book-signing reception and is free and open to the public.
