Make sure to join us on Wednesday March 26th for the Hard Word Book Club. On the docket is The Ranger by one of our favorite authors, Ace Atkins. You definitely don’t want to miss because we’ll be joined via telephone by Ace Atkins during the meeting to discuss the book.
Edgar nominated, The Ranger is a smart, fun mix of many of Ace’s loves: blues, country & western music, classic hard boiled crime fiction, Faulkner, and, especially, the Southern-set action films of the 1970s that starred Burt Reynolds and Joe Don Baker. The Ranger also takes a look at small town America post-recession and post the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
The Hard Word Book Club discussion will take place on Wednesday, Mar 26 at 7PM on BookPeople’s third floor. Ace Atkins will be calling in to discuss The Ranger and its influences with us. Remember, the book is 10% off to those who attend the meeting.
