Though she's a native of Greenwood, Miss., and an Ole Miss grad, Donna Tartt attended a writing program at Bennington College, where she met Bret Easton Ellis (Less Than Zero), and became associated with the New York Brat Pack writers of the 1980s. Her debut novel The Secret History (1992) revolved around students of the classics indulging in Dionysian rites. Her second book, The Little Friend (2002), won the WH Smith Literary Award. She's working on a novel expected to be released in 2012. The Ogden Museum features this reading and book signing in its Southern Storytellers series. Admission $10, free for Ogden members. — Will Coviello
