Former Columbia residents Carrie Brown and John Gregory Brown will read from their work at a celebration of literature’s history in this planned city.
Carrie Brown’s most recent novel is The Stargazer’s Sister, historical fiction about a nineteenth-century astronomer’s sister.
John Gregory Brown’s newest novel, A Thousand Miles from Nowhere, follows the path of a Hurricane Katrina survivor seeking redemption.
