Book & a Beer with David Joy

We’re bringing together a couple of our favorite pastimes for a laid-back approach to a literary happy hour. Book and a Beer pairs up authors talking about their books and our favorite beer guy, Brett Barest, talking about a new beer. We’re pretty sure these stories are going to complement each other.

This month, we’ll be joined by critically-acclaimed (and staff favorite) author David Joy and his new novel The Line That Held Us. David comes from Western NC and his work is rich in the Appalachian noir tradition; this new novel no exception.

When Darl Moody went hunting after a monster buck he's chased for years, he never expected he'd accidentally shoot a man digging ginseng. The cover-up of this mistake sets off a chain of dark consequences that reverberate through the lives of four people who will never be the same again. The Line That Held Us is a gripping, compulsive read. Don’t miss this fun (free!) chance to hear the story behind the story.
