In Conversation with Daren Wang

We’re excited to host Georgia debut novelist Daren Wang with his novel The Hidden Light of Northern Fires. This Civil War story, set on the other side of the Mason Dixon line, offers a picture of The Underground Railroad at work in a secessionist town near Buffalo, NY. With indelible characters and tense historical drama, Cold Mountain author Charles Frazier calls this book “a distinctive, clear-eyed perspective on a fresh corner of the Civil War.”  

Daren Wang is an accomplished storyteller and book lover. He founded the Decatur Book Festival, and spent years as a public radio host and producer.
