Asheboro author Ashley Memory to talk about first novel

A novel in which the hero is an amateur chef will net someone an authentic French crepe pan during author Ashley Memory’s talk at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 22, at the Asheboro library.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, her appearance is free and the public is invited.

Asheboro native Memory will read an excerpt from her novel Naked and Hungry and discuss her journey as a writer, signing books afterwards. She also will give away the crepe pan to the winner of a random drawing.

Naked and Hungry, about an out-of-work loan officer who retreats to the wilderness only to find it under ecological attack from shadowy villains, was named one of the season’s most promising debuts by Library Journal.

Memory is a two-time winner of the Doris Betts Fiction Prize and a nominee for the Pushcart Prize.
