Carolyn Haines to discuss new book at Authors program
USA Today bestselling author Carolyn Haines will once again delight readers with Charmed Bones, the next sparkling Sarah Booth Delaney mystery at the next Authors & Characters @ Your Library program on Tuesday, June 12 at 11:45 a.m. at the Bay St. Louis-Hancock County Library.
Haines is the bestselling author of over 70 books. She was the recipient of the Harper Lee Award for
Distinguished Writing and the Richard Wright Award for Literary Excellence, as well as the "Best Amateur Sleuth" award by Romantic Times. Born and raised in Mississippi, she now lives in Alabama on a farm with more dogs, cats, and horses than she can possibly keep track of.
The book is set in Zinnia, Mississippi, which is rife with quirky characters, but the arrival of three sister witches―and their intention to open a Wiccan boarding school―sets the small town on its ear. And bodies begin to accumulate as a result. Faith, Hope, and Charity Harrington are sexy and smart. They’re setting up their boarding school in an old dairy―a piece of property with tremendous development potential. And they’re standing in the way of “progress,” according to some in the town.
Lunch is available for $10 payable at the door to The Library Foundation. Reservations required. Call 228-467-5282 to make yours today.
