Brandi Perry: Splintered

Sunday, January 6th

2-3:30PM

Keaton Fordyce was once a celebrated and prosperous writer, but the excesses accompanying his success came at a steep cost—the loss of his family and his career. Living in a dingy river-front room in Natchez, Mississippi, Fordyce is caught in a vicious cycle of alcoholism and despair.

As fate would have it, an old friend offers him an opportunity to help get his life and career back on track. He owns an old mansion in New Orleans that he can’t sell because of its reputation as being haunted. If Fordyce will live there for a month, alcohol free, and disprove the curse, he will get the help he needs to get him back on his feet.

Accepting the offer, Fordyce prepares to face his inner demons. Perhaps he should have prepared for much, much more…

This book is available in paperback ($15.00).

Mesha Maren: Sugar Run

Thursday, January 17th

6-7:30PM

On the far side the view was nothing but ridgelines, the craggy silhouettes rising up against the night sky like the body of some dormant god. Jodi felt her breath go tight in her chest…As much as she had desired to return here, this place was itself a prison of sorts, and she could feel herself dissolving into it. Coming home was like disappearing in a way, she thought, slipping back into the past.

Jodi McCarty was only seventeen when she was sentenced to life in prison for manslaughter. After her release, she returns to the Appalachian mountains she left behind, searching for someone from the past. The homecoming proves a shock to the system in many ways. When she meets and falls in love with Miranda, the two try to make a new start, which may be impossible in a place that refuses to adapt and change. Sugar Run is the story of a very unique and particular woman, a queer woman from a working class Appalachian background, at once childlike and fierce, blind and wise, and above all else, very full of heart.

This book is available in hardcover ($26.95).
