Thursday April 14 from 6PM to 8:30PM, book presentation by Deltaworkers, at the Stacks.
To Live in the South, One Has To Be a Scar Lover is an essay bundle that aims to deconstruct the romantic and mythical image Hollywood has created of the Southern States. Editors and Deltaworkers founders Maaike Gouwenberg and Joris Lindhout will read fragments from the different essays and introduce their story of the South.
Dutchies Gouwenberg & Lindhout came to the South in 2010 on an investigative road trip exploring the Southern Gothic. They never really left and are currently running the Deltaworkers international residency program in New Orleans.
To Live in the South, One Has To Be a Scar Lover is designed by Erik Kiesewetter who has been pivotal in introducing the South to Gouwenberg & Lindhout and is a board member of Deltaworkers. Kiesewetter will dedicate a few words to the beautiful design he made for the book.
