Silas House, writer
Silas House is one of Kentuckys best-known contemporary writers. After winning critical and popular acclaim for several novels set in his native Eastern Kentucky, he tried his hand at playwrighting with The Hurting Part, an emotional drama centered on visions of the past and a longing for home. The work was staged at the University of Kentuckys Guignol Theatre in December 2005.
Two of Silas novels have been discussed on bookclub@ket: Clays Quilt and A Parchment of Leaves.
