Saturday, May 3 at 7 pm Allan Gurganus READING & SIGNING North Carolina native Allan Gurganus is the author of several books, including the classic The Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All. His new book, Local souls, continues to follow characters in his invented town of Falls, NC. Ann Patchett (This is the Story of a Happy Marriage), who was a student of Gurganus’s, says, “Allan Gurganus breathes so much life into the town of Falls, North Carolina, his reader is able to walk down the streets and mingle with the Local souls.” According to The New York Times Book Review, “…if there remains any doubt of his literary greatness, his fifth book, ‘Local souls,’ should put it to rest forever.”
