Author David Madden will give a dramatic reading from his new work, “Marble Goddesses and Mortal Flesh,” at Pellissippi State Community College Nov. 21.

The presentation — which includes a book signing — is free to attend and open to the public. The event begins at 12:30 p.m. in the Goins Building Auditorium, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

“Marble Goddesses and Mortal Flesh” is a collection of four novellas, each narrated by idealist Lucius Hutchfield, whose romantic vision of life makes him witness to the actions of unconventional heroes and heroines.

Madden is a native Knoxvillian and is author of “Bijou,” “Sharpshooter: A Novel of the Civil War,” and “The Suicide’s Wife.” He has been twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and has earned a number of awards and grants, including the National Council on the Arts Award for Fiction and the Rockefeller Grant in Fiction.
