Chris Cox, an English instructor at Southwestern Community College, will be reading from his new book, “The Way We Say Goodbye,” from 2-4 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 21, at the SCC Macon Campus.
In addition to teaching at SCC, Cox has been a newspaper columnist in the area for many years. Like his first book, “Waking Up in a Cornfield,” the new book is a collection of his essays.
“Most of these essays were written and published in the years 1998-2003, which was a period of enormous transition for me,” said Cox. “The loss of my father was a big part of that, but there are also essays that I consider to be among the funniest and quirkiest that I’ve ever written. In the end, I think the book is pretty well-balanced in content and in mood.”
