Appalachian mystery writer Bev Freeman of Unicoi will be the featured speaker at Gray Library’s Author Talk on Jan. 16.
Bev was born in Virginia, and moved with her family to Florida as a teen. In 1993 she moved back to the region, and started seriously pursuing her writing career about 15 years ago.
She has published two novels in the Madison McKenzie Files trilogy: Silence of the Bones (2016) and Where Lady Slippers Grow (2017). Bev is currently working on the third book in her series, which should be published later this year.
Freeman enjoys writing stories of unique characters set in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, weaving local history and legends into her tapestry of words.
In her spare time, she and her husband Bill enjoy touring the backroads of the Blue Ridge and the Smoky Mountains on their motorcycle.
Everyone is invited to come to the 6 p.m. event, where they can learn more about the author, ask questions, and purchase her books if they wish. For more information, call the library at 477-1550.
