At a time when many lower-income Americans are feeling the pinch, Mike Pulley's Writers' Harvest returns to Clemson University on Thursday, November 21 at 7 p.m. This will be my third year reading at this canned-goods benefit for hungry children in the Upstate, and it feels like our percentage of food-insecure citizens is on the rise. Or maybe it just always feels this way as the cold season approaches. . . I knew a bit about holiday poverty as a child although I have no recollection of ever feeling hungry or "poor" in any permanent sense of the word.
