ATLANTA -- An award-winning new author will read from his debut novel in Atlanta later this month.
Kent Wascom's book, The Blood of Heaven, tells a story about the early days of the American Republic in what is now the Southeastern U.S.
He will read from and sign copies of The Blood of Heaven Wednesday, June 26 at 7 p.m. at the Highland Inn Ballroom.
A Cappella Books, which is sponsoring Wascom's visit, provided this synopsis of the book:
Angel Woolsack is a preacher's son who flees the hardscrabble life of his itinerant father, then falls in with a charismatic highwayman. He eventually settles along the rough frontier of West Florida where Americans are carving their place out of lands held by the Spanish and French.
