PERSIMMON CREEK ARTISTS AND WRITERS RESIDENCY – PERFORMANCE – KARLA FC HOLLOWAY – ARROW ROCK HISTORIC CHRISTIAN CHURCH
Karla FC Holloway is James B. Duke Emerita Professor of English and African American Studies and Professor of Law at Duke University. During her professional career, her classrooms and scholarship focused on literature, law, and bioethics. Since becoming emerita, Karla has turned her full attention to writing fiction, occasional painting (anything with the color cerulean), and tweeting from @ProfHolloway.
In 2019, Triquarterly published Holloway’s debut literary fiction, A Death in Harlem, a mystery set during the Harlem Renaissance. Gone Missing in Harlem (2021) is her sophomore novel about memory, mothering, and resilience. She’s now captivated by the haunting intrigue of a new “…in Harlem” story. Karla lives and works in Wake Forest, North Carolina, and never—well, rarely—uses the telephone.
