179 Ponce de Leon Ave.

SCAD’s Ivy Hall Writers Series presents Jamie Iredell, author of “I Was a Fat Drunk Catholic School Insomniac.” After two full-length fiction collections that mixed his irreverent treatment of form and gritty real-life candor, Iredell delivers an assured and honest collection of personal essays. “I Was a Fat Drunk Catholic School Insomniac”  reveals a writer who takes on his literal highs and existential lows with the unembellished voice of an anthropologist.

Erudite, funny, and fearless, Iredell dives into subjects, such as drugs, alcoholism, body image, racism, feminism and religion, shining a light on some of the darkest moments of life. These personal essays are confessional and ultimately full of hope.

The event is free and open to the public. A book sale and signing will follow.
