ODIE LINDSEY’s story collection We Come to Our Senses (W.W. Norton, 2016) explores the lives of southern veterans and their families. The book has earned praise from the New York Times Book Review, Los Angeles Review of Books, the Chicago Review of Books, OUT, Kirkus, and elsewhere, and was named a Best Book of 2016 by Electric Literature and Military Times. His fiction has appeared in Best American Short Stories, Iowa Review, Columbia, Harper Perennial’s Forty Stories, and Guernica (among others). Lindsey received a Tennessee Arts Commission fellowship in literature, a Tennessee Williams Scholarship from the Sewanee Writers’ Conference, and an NEA-sponsored fellowship for veterans to the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. He holds an MFA in writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and an MA in southern studies from the University of Mississippi, where he attended graduate workshops with Barry Hannah. He teaches Medicine and Literature at Vanderbilt University.

The Argenta Reading Series seeks to connect writers directly with their audience, to appreciate the written word, and understand better the person behind those words. Readings are monthly, in the Argenta United Methodist Church meeting space, and admission is free at all readings unless otherwise noted, though the series is supported by your donations and through a partnership with the William F. Laman Public Library of North Little Rock.
