Book of the Week #20

Walking to Gatlinburg: A Novel by Howard Frank Mosher (Random House, 2010)

This Civil War-era novel by Howard Frank Mosher chronicles the nightmarish odyssey of 17-year-old Morgan Kinneson as he treks from northern Vermont to Tennessee. Tomorrow night, Thursday May 20 the author will bring his book tour to New Hampshire.

Laura Lucy at White Birch Books emailed me details:

"Tomorrow night - Thursday, May 20 - we will be welcoming Howard Frank Mosher back to town. He'll be presenting his slide show, "Turning History into Fiction" starting at 7 p.m. at the Theater in the Wood in Intervale. (Doors open at 6:30) Tickets for the event are $15 and can be purchased at the door. There will be hors d'ouvres and even complimentary champagne. We'll have books for sale, including his newest Walking to Gatlinburg, and after his presentation, Howard will happily answer questions and sign books.
This is going to be a fun night and we urge you to just come! The evening has a lot going for it. Howard Frank Mosher is charming, eloquent and fun. We'll be handing out free book goodies. And it's a chance to check out the Theater if you haven't been
there before. (You may have been there during the holidays when it is put to other uses, but, trust me, it's very different - and impressive - as a theater!)
In closing... Thursday night, great time, great author, great setting! Call us with any questions (603-356-3200) and we hope to see you there!"
If you can't make it tomorrow, Mosher will be in New London on June 10, 2010 (7pm) at a program hosted by Tracy Memorial Library & Morgan Hill Bookstore.
