Author Chat Book Club: Faulkner and Zombies

Never thought you'd read a zombie book? "Zombie's Mandate: Find Billy Faulkner" may change your mind.

Novelist and poet Carter Martin weaves William Faulkner with zombies, a combination that may just surprise you. A former UAH professor, Carter also happens to be a regional authority on Faulkner. He'll join our discussion of his book.

From the back cover: A zombie rises up from the Charles River in Boston to demand that Luke Blue Miller seek William Faulkner and have him change the ending of his greatest novel.  Carter's rich cast of characters and their stories populate this literary romp.

Because the book is difficult to order online, Carter is making several copies available for purchase at the Library. Ask at the Reference Desk on the second floor.
