Jill McCorkle Reading & Booksigning

22 Apr 2013

Join us on Monday, April 22 at 7PM as Jill McCorkle reads from and signs her new book, Life After Life. McCorkle is the author of nine previous books, five of which have been selected as New York Times "Notable Books." The recipient of the New England Book Award, the John Dos Passos Prize for Excellence in Literature, and the North Carolina Prize for Literature, she teaches writing at NC State University. Set in the retirement facility of Pine Haven Estates, Jill Life After Life explores the lives (and, in some cases, the deaths) of the Pine Haven staff and residents. She also celebrates the blessings and wisdom of later life, and infuses her remarkable novel with hope and laughter.

This event is free and open to the public.
