The annual UNCWelcome Week event celebrates the culture of creative writing on campus and in the community. This year, Thirsty Tome is sponsored by Randall Library, the Department of Creative Writing, the Upperman African American Cultural Center, the Department,of English and The Women’s Studies and Resource Center.

This year’s program includes readings by literary powerhouses Stephanie Powell Watts, Taylor Brown, Wiley Cash and Matthew Griffin. Their work focuses on the subversion of the Southern Gothic tradition, exploring the changing landscape of the South and its inhabitants.
