Andalusia Holds Author's Book Signing

Andalusia Holds Author's Book Signing

 

The Foundation will sponsor a reading and book signing by Joe Samuel Starnes at the Mary Vinson Memorial Library in Milledgeville on Friday, November 4, beginning at 4:00 p.m. Starnes's new novel, Fall Line, will be published by NewSouth Books in October. 

The novel is set in 1955, when floodgates are poised to slam shut on a concrete dam straddling the Oogasula River, creating a lake that will submerge a forgotten crossroads and thousands of acres of woodlands in rural Georgia.

Fall Line unfolds in one day's action, as viewed through the eyes of Elmer Blizzard, a troubled ex-deputy; Mrs. McNulty, a lonely widow who refuses to leave her doomed shack by the river; and a rapacious politician, State Senator Aubrey Terrell, for whom the new lake is named.
