Friday, October 25, 2019, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Join us on October 25 at 7 pm for Book and a Beer with Caleb Johnson and Mark Barr. Facilitated by our friend Brett Barest (who will introduce the beer and the author), Caleb and Mark will both give a short reading from their books, followed by a Q&A time.
Mark’s debut novel Watershed, tells a story set in post-Depression rural Tennessee, as two characters, Nathan and Claire, try to navigate their lives as electricity is first introduced into their town. We are so excited for Mark’s first book here at M. Judson, but don't just take our word for it:
“Readers looking for vivid historicals full of emotional turmoil in the vein of Wallace Stegner will enjoy this impressive novel.” says Publishers Weekly.
“Barr sheds light on a unique episode in American history while illuminating the stories of two sympathetic characters.” says Kirkus Reviews.
Featured in numerous book lists, such as Southern Living’s Best New Books and Deep South Magazine’s Recommended Books, Caleb’s Treeborne tells the story of an orchard in Alabama, weaving past and present together, and showing how stories and places combine to create a home. Come hear about the book Daniel Wallace, author of Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions, calls “mythic” and “beautiful.”
Both the event and the beer are free!
