Melanie Rae Thon, Silence and Song

melanie-rae-thon-f83b6c51-d66b-466e-abc1-6ed4185a5a2-resize-750One of my favorite writers and one of my greatest teachers is Melanie Rae Thon. She’s received  a Guggenheim, Whiting, appeared in Best American Short Stories, The Pushcart Prize anthologies, and more. She’s currently at U of Utah, teaching creative writing and environmental humanities. I can’t believe I only recently saw this short film introducing her brilliant book, Silence and Song. If you love fiction and are looking for a new author to discover, take a look.
