Thursday, January 15, at Off Square Books, Christopher Scotton will be on hand to talk about The Secret Wisdom of the Earth, the number 1 national Indie Next pick for the month of January. 14-year-old Kevin, whose younger brother's death has torn his family apart, moves to his grandfather's house in a small town which is itself torn apart by mountaintop removal mining. Booksellers and critics across
the country have been heaping praise on this powerful debut novel.
Shortly before Lyn Roberts introduces Mr. Scotton, Square Books owner Richard Howorth will give a VERY brief “State of Square Books” report to the public which will include an acknowledgment of local writers who contributed to the bookstore and the community in 2014.
As is the custom at special events, a special punch will be served. Be there and be Square.
