Course Detail: LLPNCAL - Reading the Recipient of the 2019 NC Award for Literature
UNC Wilmington Creative Writing Professor Philip Gerard is the 2019 North Carolina Award for Literature recipient.

The year 2019 celebrated the 25th anniversary of Cape Fear Rising, and Blair Publisher of Winston-Salem released a 25th anniversary edition of this novel, inspired by the 1898 coup d'état in Wilmington, NC, the only successful coup d'état in American history. Students will be expected to read the novel before class.
