Pam Durban Reading & Booksigning

26 Oct 2012

On Friday, October 26, 7 pm at Malaprop's Bookstore & Cafe, Pam Durban will present and sign her book In The Tree of Forgetfulness. Winner of the Lillian Smith Book Award, Durban continues her exploration of southern history and memory. Mesmerizing and disquieting, this novel tells the untold story of a brutal Jim Crow-era triple lynching in Aiken County, South Carolina. Interweaving several characters' voices, Durban produces a complex narrative. Durban's story resurrects a troubled past and explores the individual and collective loyalties that led a community to choose silence over justice.

This event is free and open to the public.
