The State of Things Live in Greensboro

The State of Things in Greensboro

Each month WUNC's The State of Things travels to Greensboro for a live show at Triad Stage's UpStage Cabaret.

The next live event at the Triad Stage's UpStage Cabaret will be Tuesday,  October 3.

Mylène Dressler Wants To Tell You A Ghost Story: Writer Mylène Dressler grounds her prose in her experience as an immigrant and the day-to-day happenings of life around her. But in her new book, Dressler tells a story that is decidedly ungrounded. In “The Last To See Me” (Skyhorse Publishing/ 2017) Dressler casts a spectral heroine, the ghost Emma Rose Finnis, who has unrelentingly haunted a mansion for 100 years. As the reader catches glimpses into Finnis’ long-forgotten life, Finnis herself must fight the living and the dead to protect the sanctity of her haunted home. Host Frank Stasio speaks with M. Dressler about her new novel and the parallels between ghosts and the literary characters that haunt their writers. Dressler is an associate professor of English and creative writing at Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina.
