Join us Thur., April 13, 12 pm for lunch at High Cotton (199 East Bay St.), as Karen White discusses her latest novel The Night the Lights Went Out (Berkley, hb., 416 pp., $26). Tickets are $63 for the author talk, three-course luncheon, and a signed copy of the book.
The Night the Lights Went Out begins when Merilee Talbot Dunlap moves with her two children to the Atlanta suburb of Sweet Apple, Georgia. It’s not her first time starting over, but her efforts at a fresh start aren’t helped by an anonymous local blog that dishes about the scandalous events that caused her marriage to fail. In a town like Sweet Apple, sins and secrets are as likely to be found behind the walls of gated mansions as in the dark woods surrounding Merilee’s rented cottage.
Karen White is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, known internationally for her mystery series set in Charleston. She spent most of her growing-up years in London and is a graduate of the American School there. She now lives near Atlanta with her husband, two children, and her dog Quincy (who appears in several of her books).
