Nathan Poole, assistant professor of creative writing, will read from his two books of fiction at 6:30 p.m., on Thursday, Oct. 19, at the University of South Alabama Faculty Club.

The event with Poole, who recently joined the faculty, is sponsored by the department of English and the Stokes Center for Creative Writing.

Poole is the author of two books, “Father Brother Keeper,” a collection of stories selected by Edith Pearlman for the 2013 Mary McCarthy Prize and long-listed for the international Frank O’Connor Award, and “Pathkiller as the Holy Ghost,” a novella selected by Benjamin Percy as the winner of the 2014 Quarterly West Novella Contest.

Stories by Poole have appeared in various national journals, including “Ecotone,” “The Kenyon Review,” “Narrative Magazine,” “Image,” “The Chattahoochee Review” and the “Saturday Evening Post.” He is a recipient of the Narrative Prize, a Milton Fellowship at Seattle Pacific University, a Joan Beebe Teaching Fellowship at Warren Wilson College and a Tennessee Williams Scholarship at the Sewanee Writers’ Conference.

He holds degrees from the Warren Wilson MFA program and the University of South Carolina.
