Event Details

We are excited to welcome beloved author Jill McCorkle!

This event is FREE because we hope to get a lot of people in the store to welcome and support Jill McCorkle. She will give a talk and then autograph copies of her new book- you can also bring or buy copies of her earlier titles for her to sign. Please consider joining us for this event- and bring a friend! We assure you that some time will Jill McCorkle will ignite your literary light.

She will join us at The Country Bookshop in Southern Pines to chat about Old Crimes, a collection of masterful stories that are as complex as novels--deeply perceptive, funny, and tragic in equal measure--about crimes large and small.

Old Crimes delves into the lives of characters who hold their secrets and misdeeds close, even as the past continues to reverberate across generations. And despite the characters' yearnings for connection, they can't seem to tell the whole truth: A woman uses her hearing impairment as a way to guard herself from her husband's commentary. A telephone lineman strains to communicate with his family even as he feels pushed aside in a digital world. A young couple buys a confessional booth for fun, only to discover the cost of honesty. A family reunion, ripe with treasured memories, takes place amid a secret that will alter all of their futures. Throughout, McCorkle takes us deep into these conflicted and sympathetic characters, puzzling to figure out the meaning of their own lives. Profoundly moving and unforgettable, for fans of Alice Munro, Elizabeth Strout, and Lily King, the stories in Old Crimes reveal why McCorkle has long been considered a master of the form, probing lives full of great intensity, longing and affection, and deep regret.
