Ron Rash and Michel Stone

One of our finest and most popular writers, Ron Rash, returned to us with a powerful new novel, The Cove. He was joined by a close friend and talented young writer, Michel Stone, whose first novel The Iguana Tree is drawing high praise around the country. In his much anticipated new book, Rash, the New York Times bestselling author of Serena and Saints at the River, tells the story of a blazing but doomed love affair set against the backdrop of Western North Carolina during the World War I era. The cove is a dark, forbidding place where the spirits are said to wander, and the locals believe the young woman Laurel is a witch. When Walter, a mute, enters her life, though, Laurel finds for the first time a love and happiness that she fears places everyone at risk. Stone’s debut novel “is a stirring story of love and courage under the most daunting of conditions,” a moving account of an illegal border crossing by a Mexican couple and their infant daughter and their struggle to find a home. Critics call it “a gripping story of loss, grief and human dignity.” They joined us for this author talk on May 15, 2012.
