ABOUT THE BOOK: Indigo Field
In a county in the rural South where nothing is as it seems, an abandoned field hides centuries of crimes and secrets. When a retired colonel runs into the car of an elderly Black woman, leaving surprising amounts of damage, vengeful spirits rise in Indigo Field and a feud ensues. Only by joining forces can these two survive the challenges that come next. Called “mesmerizing” and “redemptive” (Sue Monk Kidd), this “haunting novel about memory, community, and justice” (Michele Tracy Berger) has been selected as a Great Group Read by the Women’s National Book Association, a Crooks Corner Prize finalist, and winner of the prestigious Sir Walter Raleigh Award.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Marjorie Hudson
A newcomer to the South more than 30 years ago, award-winning writer Marjorie Hudson immediately fell in love – with whippoorwills, farm fields, her husband Sam, and her new community. Her work has won accolades and fellowships all over the country, but her activism and teaching in Chatham County keep her feet on the ground. Author of Searching for Virginia Dare (history/road trip), Accidental Birds of the Carolinas (stories), and the new novel Indigo Field, Hudson is known for her dedication to community-building in her work as well as in her neighborhood. www.marjoriehudson.com
