Book Signing and Reading with Lee Smith | Main Library
Tuesday, March 22, 6:00 p.m.
Celebrate the release of Lee Smith’s newest book, Dimestore. In this memoir, Smith writes about her father’s dimestore in her hometown (the dimestore now gone, along with the original town); her relatives and the local characters; her mother’s long-cherished recipes and what they mean to her; the mental illness that courses through her family tree; and how her mountain culture made her a writer.
