PROLOGUE STARTS AT NOON

Monday, February 11th

The MC Erny Gallery

On Monday, February 11th, at NOON in the MC Erny Gallery, Ben Steelman of Wilmington's StarNews will sit down with author and travel writer Jason Frye to discuss his several works.  

About the Author:

Raised deep in the mountains of West Virginia, Jason Frye first fell in love with North Carolina as a kid during family vacations to the Outer Banks. In 2002, he swapped his mountains for sand dunes and his river for an ocean when he moved to Wilmington to pursue a master of fine arts in creative writing. There, his love for North Carolina deepened into a longing to stay, settle, explore, and be a part of the people, culture, and history of the state. Along with his wife, Lauren, Jason has kayaked the marshes and waterways near his home; hang glided off the Outer Banks; explored the cityscapes of Charlotte, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem; and wandered the woods and wilds around Asheville. Jason is the author the Moon Handbook volumes on North Carolina, the N.C. Coast, the Great Smokey Mountains, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Asheville. His work appears frequently in Our State magazine. A graduate of UNCW, Frye studied poetry under Sarah Messer, Michael White and Mark Cox, and credits a nature writing course under David Gessner with steering him toward travel writing.
