Good books make us think; great books make us want to share our ideas. The new Community Conversations event series is hosted by the Huntsville Library Foundation and will be kicked off by Greg Iles, Mississippi native and New York Times best-selling author of Natchez Burning, on Thursday, September 3, at the Chan Auditorium on the UAH campus. The program will begin promptly at 7 p.m. and will be followed with a reception and book signing.
Iles will read from The Bone Tree, the newly-released second book in the Natchez Burning trilogy. Dealing with themes such as race and blood, justice and corruption, truth and the family ties that bind, The Bone Tree is a perfect conversation starter for topics that are still relevant today within our own community. Following the reading by Iles, there will be a question and answer session that encourages dialogue not just between the author and his readers, but also among those in attendance.
Tickets to Community Conversations: Greg Iles are $25 for general admission and $5 for students with current ID. All proceeds benefit the Huntsville Library Foundation. Attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance online at http://store.hmcpl.org.
