Writer Nick White will discuss, read from and sign copies of his recently released novel, How To Survive A Summer, a searing debut novel about a gay-to-straight conversion camp in Mississippi and a man’s reckoning with the trauma he faced there as a teen.
Acclaimed short story writer and novelist Jill McCorkle calls Nick White’s debut novel “both terrifying and timely . . . Will Dillard is an endearing character and his journey—both physical and emotional—is incredibly moving. The suspense will urge you to read faster but the skillful language needs to be savored.”
Nick White is an Assistant Professor of English at Ohio State University. A native of Mississippi, he earned a Ph.D. in English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. His short stories have been published in a variety of places, including The Kenyon Review, Guernica, Indiana Review, Day One, and The Hopkins Review.
