Catawba County Library
Press Release


Are you a budding writer working on a novel? Do you have questions about building a narrative and bringing your characters to life?

The Catawba County Library is pleased to be hosting a virtual workshop featuring North Carolina writer Heather Frese to help you hone your craft. It takes place at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, June 8th; to register, visit tinyurl.com/CatCoWriting or call 828-465-8665.

The Raleigh-based Frese has published short stories, essays, and poetry. Her recently-released debut novel, The Baddest Girl on the Planet, is a coming-of-age story set on Hatteras Island, NC, and was the winner of the Lee Smith Novel Prize.

During the workshop, Frese will talk about the elements of fiction that can lift a story off the ground, including plot, setting, voice, and dialogue. She’ll also provide time for you to write and ask questions and will offer personal feedback. Plus, you’ll have a chance to win a free signed copy of The Baddest Girl on the Planet.

A native Ohioan, Frese received master’s degrees from West Virginia University and Ohio University. Her work has appeared in Michigan Quarterly Review, the Los Angeles ReviewFront Porch, the Barely South ReviewSwitchback, and elsewhere, earning notable mention in the Pushcart Prize Anthology and Best American Essays.

OTHER LIBRARY NEWS

Kids, have you ever found a wild animal that was injured and didn’t know what to do about it?

If you’d like to learn the best practices for helping an animal in distress get the care it needs, join the Catawba County Library for a virtual program with the May Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Banner Elk, NC. Representatives from the facility on the campus of Lees-McRae College will provide expert guidance and also introduce a selection of their animal ambassadors.

The first session of “What Should I Do? Wildlife Edition” takes place at 10 am on Tuesday, June 8th, and the second takes place at 3 pm on Wednesday, June 9th. Both programs are identical, so families are asked to only sign up for one. To register for the June 8th session, visit tinyurl.com/wildlifeone or call 828-465-8665. To register for the June 9th session, visit tinyurl.com/wildlifetwo.
