Minrose Gwin “Promise” Author Event @ Flyleaf Books @ Flyleaf Books
Mar 6 @ 6:00 pm

MINROSE GWIN, like the characters in her latest novel, Promise, grew up in Tupelo, Mississippi. She began her writing career as a newspaper and wire service reporter in cities throughout the southeast. Her civil rights-era novel, The Queen of Palmyra, was a “Indy Notable Selection” and a finalist for the John Gardner Fiction Book Award. Her memoir, Wishing for Snow, tells the story of her mother’s descent into mental illness.

Wearing another hat, Minrose is also the author of cultural and literary studies books that focus on racial injustice. In Remembering Medgar Evers: Writing the Long Civil Rights Movement, she writes of the reverberating impact of the Civil Rights leader’s martyrdom. She is also a co-editor of The Literature of the American South and has taught as a professor at universities across the country, most recently the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

PROMISE is a literary love song that hits all the right notes and has recently been selected as both an Indie Next Pick and SIBA OKRA Pick. Poignant and insightful, it’s a powerful story of loss, hope, despair, grit, and courage. With this book, Gwin flexes her impressive narrative muscle creating her most ambitious novel to date. With her sharp examination of race relations, disaster aid relief and more, she’s crafted a searing cultural commentary on today’s most prescient issues focused through the lens of history. It’s effortless to see recent headlines reflected in the novel: Puerto Rican hurricane relief, Black Lives Matter, Charlottesville, NFL protests, and on the list goes. A breathtakingly gorgeous account of an unknown side of history, PROMISE is an enthralling saga that is affecting, shocking, and ultimately redemptive.
