Panliterary Award-Winner Kat Meads has a new book coming out, When The Dust Finally Settles, from Ravenna Press.

In The Invented Life of Kitty Duncan, Kat Meads created a 1950s-era Scarlett O’Hara in eastern North Carolina. Now, in when the dust finally settles, she speaks through Faulknerian voices as white and black members of her small eastern North Carolina community desegregate the schools in the 1960s. Meads’s Clarence Carter, speaking from the dead, provides a surprisingly upbeat (and humorous) perspective on the events unfolding in the community he has not yet quite left. The other voices, young and old, share Clarence’s openness to change—a refreshingly different Southern story.
—Dr. Margaret D. Bauer, Rives Chair of Southern Literature, East Carolina University; Editor, North Carolina Literary Review
