Associate Professor of English and Creative Writing Mylène Dressler Debuts Her Latest Novel


Associate Professor of English and Creative Writing Mylène Dressler's latest novel, I See You So Close, will debut at Guilford College on March 23 at 6 p.m. with a Gilmer Room Dinner and Discussion entitled "Embracing Your Ghosts" and on March 27 at 7 p.m. with a book launch celebration at Scuppernong Books in downtown Greensboro.

Praised by Publisher's Weekly as "tense, lyrical, and masterful," I See You So Close is the second book in her award-winning The Last Ghost series, selected by Hollywood's Book Pipeline Award for film development and by Audiofile Magazine for its Earphone Award for Fiction. The story traces the life and afterlife of Emma Rose Finnis, a young woman who fights to be seen and heard in “a captivating page-turner about what defines and divides a community, both in life and in death” (Booklist).

Mylène is the author of six novels, including The Last to See Me, the first book in her The Last Ghost Series. She is the critically acclaimed author of novels, novellas, and essays, and her stories and nonfiction have appeared in the Kenyon Review, Creative Nonfiction, and Lit Hub, among others. Her honors include the North Carolina Artists Fellowship and the Paisano Fellowship in Literature, as well as writing residencies at Hedgebrook and the Carson McCullers Center.

Copies of the novel will be available for purchase and signing at both events. These events are sponsored by the Guilford Honors Program and Friends of the Library.
