Jackson native, Katrina Byrd, is not only an exceptional author but also a writer friend of mine. We met a few years back when I first began The Writers Spotlight. Katrina is a gifted writer of fiction. She is talented at seamlessly writing humor into her work without losing the integrity of the plot.
Katrina will be reading her latest work, Portrait of a Woman, at Lumpkins’ BBQ on March 11 at 7 p.m. Portrait of a Woman is a collection of diverse genre writings centered on the female experience. Katrina, who received an Artist Minigrant from the Mississippi Arts Commission to help fund the reading, describes her work as “stories about real women confronted with real life situations.”
Again, the reading takes place on March 11 at 7 p.m. at Lumpkins’ BBQ, located at 182 Raymond Road, Jackson, MS 39204. The $20 admission includes a gourmet meal provided by Lumkins’ BBQ and the reading of Portrait of a Woman. Trust me, the meal and the reading are well worth the price.
