Authors at the Library: Allan Gurganus
PastWednesday, November 06, 2013 - Starts at 07:00 PM
If Allan Gurganus’s first comic novel, Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All, mapped the late nineteenth-century South, his latest book, Local Souls, brings the twisted hilarity of Flannery O’Connor kicking into the 21st century. This first work in a decade offers three novellas mirroring today’s face-lifted South, a zone revolutionized around freer sexuality, looser family ties, and superior telecommunications, yet it celebrates those locals who have chosen to stay local. The event is free, but tickets are required. Call 574-1644.
