Come hear local authors John Shelton Reed & Lisa Alther talk about their new books on Monday, October 15 @ 6:30 p.m.  In Dixie Bohemia, John Shelton Reed “introduces William Faulkner’s circle of friends -ranging from the distinguished Sherwood Anderson to a gender-bending Mardi Gras costume designer – and brings to life the people and places of New Orleans in the Jazz Age.”  Lisa Alther’s Stormy Weather & Other Stories is “probably as close as she will ever come to writing an autobiography.”  The dozen stories, written over the course of her career, take place in the Southern mountains, in Vermont and in New York City.  Sponsored by the Friends of the Kingsport Public Library, this event is free and open to the public.  Books will be available for purchase and signing.  Refreshments will be available.
