A Reading with Frye Gaillard

Thursday, January 28, 2021
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM (CT)
Event Type
Stokes Center for Creative Writing

Frye Gaillard, USA Writer in Residence, will read from his new book, Live As If... A Teacher's Love Story, reflecting on the life and work of his wife, Nancy Gaillard, who died of leukemia in 2018.

Partly a memoir of a vibrant marriage, Live As If... also recounts the story of Nancy's work as a public school teacher, principal, and assistant professor at South Alabama, as well as her final journey with leukemia. "If love had a voice and could tell us its story," says best-selling author Patti Callahan Henry, winner of the Harper Lee Award, "it would be this one by Frye Gaillard. As Gaillard recounts the extraordinary life of his wife, Nancy, he offers us a peek into a life so well-lived, a life so full of courage and generosity, that it changes us just by reading about her."
