Leesa-Cross Smith — whom you may know through her books, or from “Ain’t Half Bad,” her popular essay on Sturgill Simpson published by the Oxford American — is the final reader for the OA’s new South Words reading series. In addition to her OA publications, Cross-Smith is the author of “Whiskey & Ribbons” (which was, among other honors, listed on Oprah Magazine’s “Top Books of Summer”), “Every Kiss a War” and “So We Can Glow,” a collection of short stories forthcoming from Grand Central Press on March 10. OA contributing editor Kevin Brockmeier moderates, and a book sale and signing follow the discussion.
