Meet Mystery Writer Vicki Lane Over Lunch at City Lights
City Lights will host a special lunchtime meet-the-author event with mystery writer Vicki Lane on Thursday, June 5th at Noon. Lane's new book, entitled In a Dark Season, came out last week.
Lane is the author of the Appalachian mystery series featuring Elizabeth Goodweather on her western North Carolina farm. Like the previous books in the series ( Signs in the Blood, Art's Blood, and Old Wounds), In a Dark Season is set in the fictional mountain community of Marshall County,
For Elizabeth Goodweather of Full Circle Farm, still a newcomer after more than twenty years, one terrible glimpse ignites a mystery that reaches back years in the community, drawing together dozens of seemingly unconnected lives.
Crouched on its ledge above the historic Drovers' Road, the house at Gudger's Stand has witnessed many a dark and bitter deed. When a new friend of Goodweather leaps from the upper story of the old building, Elizabeth and Phillip, already tangled in the problems of their own off-and-on relationship, are drawn into a web of long-kept family secrets. Brooding madness, mountain magic, and a tale of bewitchment and betrayal in a by-gone time all come together in this fourth installment of the Elizabeth Goodweather mystery series.
During the informal luncheon, Lane will read from the book and take questions. She will also be available to autograph books.
City Lights will provide a light catered lunch for attendees who pre-order one at a cost of $6.50. Please call the store at 586-9499 by Tuesday, June 3rd to reserve a meal. Attendees are also welcome to bring their own lunch.
