July 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
“With an impeccable ear for dialogue, an artist’s eye for detail, and deep understanding of the push and pull of family, Meredith gives us South of Heaven—a celebration of growth and survival when confronted by mistakes and denial and, ultimately, how people can be transformed by acceptance and the astonishing surprises we should all be looking for. A beautiful read!”
-Darnell Arnoult, author of Sufficient Grace and Galaxie Wagon
Join us for a reading with Patti Meredith from her debut novel, South of Heaven.
South of Heaven, set in Carthage, North Carolina in 1998, tells the story of two middle-aged sisters stuck under the same leaky roof as their secrets become front-page news.
Miscommunications and slights, real and imagined, threaten to keep Fern and Leona divided but the inexplicable bond of family, a widowed preacher in search of his own lost faith, and an unlikely business venture deliver rescue. South of Heaven is a testament to second chances and unexpected consequences.
