James Hannaham and John W. Bateman

  • James Hannaham’s most recent novel, Delicious Foods, won the PEN/Faulkner and Hurston/Wright Legacy Awards, and was a New York Times Notable Book. He teaches in the Writing Program at the Pratt Institute.
  • John W. Bateman was the first person in his family to leave the fly-over states in more than 200 years (although it didn’t last). He recently finished his Master’s in English and is back in the South, looking for words in unsuspecting places. Occasionally, he climbs rocks and has a secret addiction to glitter. He has been glitter-free since last Wednesday.
