Internationally Acclaimed Georgia Writer Terry Kay
at The Bowers House
In April the Bowers House Literary Center in Canon, Georgia, and the University of Georgia’s award-winning journal The Georgia Review welcomed writer Terry Kay at the Bowers House.
Terry Kay, a Hart County native who currently makes his home in Athens, is the author of some fifteen books—among them eleven novels, a collection of essays, a children’s book, and a recently released volume of short stories, The Greats of Cuttercane.
Three of Kay’s novels have been produced as Hallmark Hall of Fame movies: The Runaway, The Valley of Light, and his best-known work To Dance with the White Dog—the last of these starring the famous acting couple of Hume Cronin and Jessica Tandy.
Readers around the world can find Kay’s books translated into more than twenty languages; most notably, To Dance with the White Dog has sold some two million copies in Japan.
After Kay’s reading in the house’s spacious living room/parlor, Georgia Review editor Stephen Corey moderated a conversation between Kay and the audience. A reception followed, during which attendees enjoyed refreshments while walking the grounds or sitting on the first- and second-floor wraparound porches.
