Author and Local Fairview Kid Returns After 50 year In-Person

Monday, July 25


Lincoln Community Center Library

FREE.  No Registration Required.

In 1972, William “Billy” Walsh had only one thing on his mind when his family moved to Dallas, Texas—playing baseball. He learned to play the game in the Tri-Boro League, and in 1972, weeks before he moved, his team, the Yankees, won the championship. Eight published books and four colleges degrees later, Walsh is returning to Fairview to discuss Lakewood, his debut novel, why it took 39 years to complete, and how you can also publish your story. Walsh, a professor at Reinhardt University, directs the undergraduate and graduate creative writing programs, but he has had a career as a restaurant owner, computer programmer, a spy, and for 26 years as a private investigator. This award-winning author has published in the finest magazines in the country, and his books include Speak So I Shall Know Thee: Interviews with Southern WritersThe Ordinary Life of a Sculptor; The Conscience of My Other BeingUnder the Rock Umbrella: Contemporary American Poets from 1951-1977; David Bottoms: Critical Essays and Interviews; and Lost in the White Ruins; and, Fly Fishing in Times Square. He lives in Atlanta with his wife and three children. You are welcome to bring your own copy of Author William “Billy” Walsh's books to be autographed.
