Radford Reads with Noley Reid

Thursday, July 19, 2018

Radford Reads presents author Noley Reid! Noley Reid writes on the subjects of body, food, and family. Her recent novel, Pretend We Are Lovely, is set in the summer of 1982 in Reid’s own childhood house on the dead-end block of Eheart Street in Blacksburg, Virginia—a town she still pines for all these years later. The book is about what happens to the grief we starve and the grief we feed, and has earned rave reviews from Oprah Magazine, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and more. Her previous books are the short story collection So There! and the novel In the Breeze of Passing Things. Her nonfiction and fiction appear in The Rumpus, The Lily, Bustle, Los Angeles Review of Books, Literary Hub, Publishers Weekly, The Southern Review, and Other Voices. Reid taught creative writing for 18 years in colleges, universities, and community centers. Two years ago, she quit her tenured job to write fulltime. She lives in southwest Indiana with her two best boys.
