speaking & signing
|One of our fellow indie booksellers has written a remarkable new novel and we're thrilled to welcome her here to read from it! Based on the true story of the still-unsolved case of her stepbrother's murder, Howorth tells the story of Mary Byrd Thornton, a reporter who reluctantly returns to Virginia from Mississippi to confront her family and the irremovable stain of the tragic, unsolved murder of a nine-year-old boy. This is Howorth's first novel. She and her husband operate Square Books in Oxford, Mississippi.|
