Author Trio: Katherine Scott Crawford, Joseph Cutshall-King & Jubal Tiner

12 Jan 2013

On Saturday, January 12, 7pm at Malaprop's Bookstore & Cafe, a diverse trio of authors will read from and sign their recent books. Katherine Scott Crawford will present Keowee Valley, her novel set on the southern frontier inhabited by the powerful Cherokee people -- a book praised by bestselling author Pat Conroy for Crawford's “lovely prose style, [and] great sense of both humor and history. . . she tells about a time in South Carolina that I never even imagined.” Joseph Cutshall-King will read from The Burning of the Piping Rock, a tale set against the backdrop of the 1949-51 effort to destroy the hubs of organized crime in America. Jubal Tiner will present The Waterhouse, of which best-selling author Ron Rash has written, “With its interrelated characters, The Waterhouse gives the reader both the pleasure of individual short stories as well as the wider arc of a novel. Tiner . . . expertly plumbs the depths of his characters’ troubled souls.”

This event is free and open to the public.
