Fiction reading

The MFA Writing Program at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and The Greensboro Review will host a fiction reading by Rebecca Davis on Tuesday, January 29th at 7PM at Scuppernong Books, 304 S. Elm Street. It is free and open to the public and will be followed by a book signing.

Rebecca Davis is the author of the novel in stories Amidst this Fading Light (SFK Press, 2018), and her work has appeared in literary magazines such as storySouth, Monkeybicycle, and Flying South.

A native North Carolinian, Rebecca Davis decided in first grade to be a writer, after she wrote a story about becoming a paleontologist. She likes the idea of truth in story-telling—stories that are not only true about humanity but also sprinkled with historical realities, and that show the reader various facets of personal interaction. Inspired by a gruesome murder that occurred near her hometown of Germanton, NC in 1929, Rebecca wants readers to feel the gravity of tragedy, yet still feel the potential for growth and hope. She attended Salem College and earned master’s degrees from Wake Forest University and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Currently, she teaches writing at Salem College.
