2016-08-09 23:00:00 2016-08-10 00:00:00 America/Edmonton University of Arkansas Press Author Showcase: Brooks Blevins Join us for our University of Arkansas Press Author Showcase on Tuesday, August 9 at 6:00 pm.  This quarterly series is designed to showcase the amazing talent that the University of Arkansas Press publishes each year. Our latest showcase speaker is Ozark historian, Brooks Blevins.  Blevins will be discussing the new book, Back Yonder, which spotlights the classic Ozark writer Charles Wayman Hogue.  This is the first book in the Chronicles of the Ozarks series, which aims to make classic Arkansan works available to modern readers. Hogue’s stories of growing up in the Ozarks were widely acclaimed and the New York Times said that he could “brilliantly illuminate mountain life to its very heart and in its most profound aspects.”  Back Yonder is a memoir of rural life in Arkansas during the post-Civil War era that shows a family making its way in rugged, impoverished, and sometimes violent place. Brooks Blevins, who provides the introduction to the book, is a native of the Arkansas Ozarks and is the Noel Boyd Professor of Ozarks Studies at Missouri State University.  His books include Ozark favorites such as Arkansas/Arkansaw: How Bear Hunters, Hillbillies, and Good Ol' Boys Defined a State; Hill Folks: A History of Arkansas Ozarkers and Their Image; and Ghost of the Ozarks: Murder and Memory in the Upland South. Books will be available to purchase at the event. no location Fayetteville Public Library
