Please join The Country Bookshop in welcoming local author Patti Frye Meredith as she talks about her debut novel, South of Heaven.
The event will take place on Thursday, August 25th at 5pm and will be held at The Country Bookshop.
Due to limited space, registration is required.
South of Heaven, set in Carthage, North Carolina in 1998, tells the story of two estranged sisters forced back under the same roof. Miscommunications and slights, real and imagined, threaten to keep the sisters divided but the inexplicable bond of family, a widowed preacher in search of his own lost faith, and an unlikely business venture deliver rescue. South of Heaven is a testament to second chances and unexpected consequences.
Patti Meredith grew up in Galax, Virginia. Most of her stories are set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, but her debut novel, South of Heaven, takes place in the North Carolina Sandhills where her family’s roots run deep. After graduating from Virginia Tech with a degree in horticulture, she was fortunate to cultivate a career in television production. Patti holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Memphis. Her stories have appeared in Appalachian Heritage, Still: The Journal, and Mulberry Fork Review. She has lived in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, and Louisiana and wouldn’t take anything for the friends she’s made along the way. Patti, her husband, Lee, and their Springer Spaniel, Maggie, are now settled in Chapel Hill.
