Reading: Five Thin Slices of Truth

Posted on Wed, Dec 16, 2009 at 4:00 AM

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2009-12-16

Adolphus Herndon will read from his short-story collection, Five Thin Slices of Truth, Thursday night at Candlelight. Herndon, an East Texas native and South Texas resident, marks his literary debut with the collection, which addresses some timely and some timeless stuff. On Herndon’s roster of fictive concerns are the frustrations of preacher’s kids; African-American mores, theory, and media; a heroic and conflicted queer combat medic in Iraq; and foster parenting. With character names such as Roymon Bivenz, Me’Shella Owens, and Xavion Furlough, we can already sense music in his text. 7-10pm Dec 18, 3011 N. St. Mary’s, adolphusherndon.com. — Sarah Fisch
