Cloverdale Performing Arts Center presents well known author Peg Alford Pursell in the Books on Stage series.


Peg Alford Pursell lives in northern California and is a writer, editor, teacher, and literary community builder. Pursell’s first book, "Show Her A Flower, A Bird, A Shadow," is described as “a collection of fiction and hybrid prose.” It is featured in Poets & Writers Magazine’s second annual “5 Over 50”—a selection of five debut authors over the age 50 who published in 2017.


In addition Pursell is a finalist for the Foreword Reviews Book of the Year Awards and the Eric Hoffer Award’s First Horizon Award, to honor “superior work by debut authors.” Several stories have been nominated for The Pushcart Prize.


“Peg Alford Pursell’s [collection] is piercing,” says 7X7 magazine. “With vivid characters and striking situations of loss and longing, this collection of lyrical prose is bound to sucker-punch you right in the soul.”


The event will be followed by wine, cheese and conversation in the lobby. Suggested donation $10.
