Joy Castro, author of “Flight Risk” and “Hell or High Water,” will be visiting Marshall’s Drinko Library Atrium on Thursday, Nov. 2, as a part of the A.E. Stringer Visiting Writers Series.

Castro is an award-winning author, with “Hell or High Water” receiving the Nebraska Book Award and her 2022 book “Flight Risk” named as a finalist for the International Thriller Award.

Joy is visiting as part of Hispanic Heritage Month.

“Joy is an exceptional writer who spent many of her formative years in West Virginia, and I am so grateful she will be sharing her work with our students and larger campus community,” said Dr. Sara Henning, assistant professor of English and series coordinator,  in a news release. “As a first-generation college student, she has risen to become one of the most beloved Latinx literary voices of our time.”

Castro also had her novel “Nearer Home” published by Gallimard’s Série Niore and has been honored for her other works, including a short story collection, “How Winter Began,” the memoir “The Truth Book” and essay collection “Island of Bones.”

Castro also serves as the editor of “Family Trouble: Memoirists on the Hazards and Rewards of Revealing Family,” a craft anthology series, and she is the founding series editor of “Machete,” a literary nonfiction series. 

The event is free and open to the public and will also be available to stream on www.marshall.edu/livestream.
