Suzanne Raether at City LightsWritten by Admin
Suzanne Raether will read from and sign her novel, Judaculla, Friday, at 7 p.m. on Jan.13 at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva.
Set in Jackson County, Judaculla tells the story of Timothy Fletcher, a 19-year-old WCU student athlete who discovers that he is actually the manifestation of an ancient mountain god.
“In her debut novel, Judaculla, Raether weaves story and poetry, myth and reality, the sacred and the profane, to create a spellbinding exploration of the fragile intersections between people and worlds. Fresh and original, compelling and utterly beguiling, Raether’s voice and talent are magic,” said Western North Carolina novelist Pam Duncan.
