William Faulkner arrived in Chapel Hill on October 31, 1931 and stayed until the 3rd of November. He gave a talk in Chapel Hill but no one kept notes. His visit did, however, result in the publication of nine of his poems and a short story in an issue of CONTEMPO, a Tar Heel magazine.
In May 1931, a small magazine called Contempo was first published in Chapel Hill. Contempo, published until February 1934, and focused on the contemporary world of literature. It published eight Nobel Prize winners along with numerous American and European literary icons. The magazine is well remembered for its young founder Milton Avant Abernethy and his literary encounters with writer William Faulkner.
