Novelist Ann Hite, author of the acclaimed debut novel Ghost on Black Mountain will speak at 7 p.m. June 28 at the Jackson County Public Library in downtown Sylva.
Ghost on Black Mountain is told in the voices of five women whose lives are inextricably bound when a murder takes place in rural Depression-era North Carolina. It spans generations and conjures the best of Southern folklore.
Her book talk will touch on what makes Southern fiction unique, and she will read selections from Ghost on Black Mountain, a tale in the Southern Gothic tradition and the first in a proposed series. 828.586.2016 or www.fontanalib.org.
