Author to host reading, discussion
Published 9:29 pm Tuesday, July 17, 2012
River Walk Gallery & Arts Center will host a reading and discussion with M. K. Graff, author of the Nora Tierney mystery series. The public is invited to attend the conversation Sunday at 2 p.m. in the gallery at 139 E. Main St., Washington.
According to a gallery news release, Marnette Graff has done it again with “The Green Remains,” the second of her British mysteries. The first, “The Blue Virgin,” was set in Oxford, where Graff spent time as a student. “The Green Remains” is based in England’s Lake District and follows Nora and her impetuous curiosity as she’s thrown headlong into the heart of the mystery itself.
This book has everything one expects of a cozy English read: tragedy, intrigue, scandal, the very old family in the manse and the faithful retainer. There is the Lake District with all its mystique and allure and a picture of English country life.
Graff is an exceptionally versatile and generous writer who has much to share with readers and writers, as well. She lives with her husband, Arthur, on the Pungo River in Hyde County with their dog, Radar.
Refreshments will be served at Sunday’s event.
