VOX Artist Series presents An Evening With Barry Hannah!

Join us on Dec. 1st at 7 PM for a sit down with one of America's most inventive and original writers and an acknowledged master of the modern short story. Mr. Hannah will read from his work and then take questions. At Mr. Hannah's request, black-eyed peas and cornbread will be available for a $4.00 donation.

Special guest Glennray Tutor, renowned Oxford photorealist, will discuss his work in designing the iconic cover for Mr. Hannah's classic short story collection Bats Out of Hell and Mr. Hannah's other book covers.

Special guest Tate Moore of The Kuzdu Kings (and owner of the delicious Square Pizza in Oxford) will treat the crowd to special music.
