Over the past ten years, Joan Medlicott of nearby Barnardsville has established a strong, national following for her Covington novels, featuring a group of ladies facing the challenges and joys of small town life. Joan has been a great friend of Accent on Books, and we have enjoyed selling her books and hosting her for events. (She is also part of a writers group that meets twice a month at the store.)
Joan's new "Covington" book is A Blue and Gray Christmas, and we are delighted that she will be here this coming Friday, beginning at 4:00 to meet her readers and sign copies of the book. As the title implies, this book has an historical aspect to it as Grace, Amelia and Hannah discover a trove of letters from the Civil War, and decide to find the letter writers' current day descendants and invite them to Covington for the holidays.
Again, note the special time of 4:00 PM for this event (earlier than our usual starting time of 6:00 for author appearances). This is a great opportunity to pick up some wonderful gifts for the many fans of Joan's books, as well as for yourself.
More information about Joan and her work can be found at her website.
