Book & a Beer with Terry Barr

We’re bringing together a couple of our favorite pastimes for a laid-back approach to a literary happy hour. Book and a Beer pairs up authors talking about their books and our favorite beer guy, Brett Barest, talking about a new beer. We’re pretty sure these stories are going to complement each other.

This month, we’ll be joined by Greenville’s own Terry Barr and his second memoir, We Might As Well Eat: How To Survive Tornados, Alabama Football and Your Southern Family. In these pages, Terry digs into the rituals, the sorrows, the joys, and pain of living in the South, particularly Alabama and upstate South Carolina. Is being an Alabama football fan a blessing, or an obsession passed down from generation to generation? Should you eat during a destructive tornado, or count your blessings and say your prayers? Can family, food, and football bring all races and ethnic groups together, even in the South?

Terry Barr has been a professor of English and Creative Writing at Presbyterian College for the past thirty-one years. Join us to hear the story behind this story, taste a great new Southern beer, and start your weekend off right. 7pm Absolutely free!
