Ron Rash is an American poet, short story writer, novelist, and the Parris Distinguished Professor in Appalachian Cultural Studies at Western Carolina University. It has been 10 years since Ron’s last novel.
Ron will read from and discuss his new book, The Caretaker, answer questions, and sign books purchased from Blue Ridge Books.
Told against the backdrop of the Korean War as a small Appalachian town sends its sons to battle, The Caretaker is a breathtaking love story and a searing examination of the acts we seek to justify in the name of duty, family, honor, and love.
Tickets available at Blue Ridge Books, and at the door as space allows. Cost: $10
