Talking Leaves...Books presents

Howard Frank Mosher

Novelist Howard Frank Mosher will read from his new novel Walking to Gatlinburg and present a slide show entitled Transforming History into Fiction: the Story of a Born Liar. He'll sign copies of the new novel and of his previous work. Talking Leaves and Hallwalls hosted Mosher a couple of years ago to an enthusiastic audience for a reading and screening of the independent film Disappearances, drawn from his novel of the same name. Walking to Gatlinburg, set in 1864, follows northern Vermonter Morgan Kinneson as he tries to track down his brother Pilgrim, a doctor who has gone missing from the Union Army. Magical and wonderfully strange, the novel is both a thriller of the highest order and a heartbreaking odyssey into the heart of American darkness, where history, race, nature, politics, love, and survival flow.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
