Crime Fiction Down South: Tom Mullen, Attica Locke, S.A. Cosby @ AJC Decatur Book Festival
September 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Award-winning novelists, Tom Mullen, Attica Locke, and S. A. Cosby, talk about their hard-hitting crime novels set in Georgia, Texas, and Virginia. Mullen’s novel Lightning Men explores race, law enforcement, and justice in mid-century Atlanta. Locke’s Heaven, My Home, a sequel to her earlier book Bluebird, Bluebird, chronicles a Texas Ranger’s search for a missing child, and grapples with American nostalgia and white supremacism. S. A. Cosby’s My Darkest Prayer follows an unconventional investigator tracing the cause of a small town minister’s death. These authors will discuss what they love about crime fiction, what it tells us about our society, and where it goes from here. The panel will be moderated by Emory history professor, Carl Suddler, and doctoral student, Kareem Joseph.
