Red Dragon Reading Series Presents Charlotte Zoë Walker

Red Dragon Reading Series will host Charlotte Zoë Walker, Wednesday, October 5, at 7:30 pm in Craven Lounge, Morris Conference Center.

Walker is the editor of two books on naturalist John Burroughs for Syracuse University Press: Sharp Eyes and The Art of Seeing Things., and directed the first two Sharp Eyes Conferences at SUNY Oneonta, where she taught for many years.  A former NEA Creative Writing Fellow and O. Henry Award winner, she has recently released a thirtieth anniversary edition of her novel Condor and Hummingbird, set in Colombia in the 1960’s.   Condor and Hummingbird was first published by Alice Walker’s Wild Trees Press in 1986, and in England  by The Women’s Press. Alice Walker described it as “a compelling and passionate novel about a woman’s discovery that the most foreign country is within.”
