Yesterday I got to share some good times, coffee, and food with some great friends and colleagues at the YoCup in Clinton, SC. If you’ve never been to the YoCup in Clinton, it’s a small but quaint shop that is great for giving a reading in. I read the preface to my book Don’t Date Baptists and my essay, “But Pat Boone Never Lived in Bessemer,” and signed books afterward. Below are some pictures from the event.
I teach Creative Nonfiction, Food and Literature, Southern Film, and Modern Novel at Presbyterian College. I write narrative nonfiction essays and have been published widely in places such as Red Fez, Graze, Belle Reve Literary Journal, Remarkable Doorways, Quail Bell Magazine, Full Grown People, Rougarou, and Red Truck Review. I am married with two daughters, and listen avidly to independent rock, blues, and outlaw and traditional country music. View all posts by Terry Barr
