MFP’s Lit Chat series kicks off with a discussion of Alec Clayton’s latest novel, Locked In, the story of newspaperman Willie Ray Rivers’ fight for justice in the little town of Hub City, Mississippi. Completely paralyzed and unable to talk after a stroke, Willie Ray’s story is told through his thoughts and memories. The reader is in his mind.
“I love Willie Ray Rivers’ voice. Clayton pulls off the same brilliant trick he has managed in all of his novels. Instead of railing about the evil, the author speaks from the voice of a normal but sane and basically decent observer.”
– Jack Butler, author of Living in Little Rock with Miss Little Rock.
Please join us on Zoom at 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time on Sunday, October 1st for a reading from the book Locked In, and to talk with Alec about his book — whether or not you have read it. (If you have read it, please, no spoilers.)
Lit Chat is a series of get-togethers on Zoom where you, the reader, can chat with the authors about their books. We will get together from time to time, and each meeting will feature a particular book or author(s). We plan to record the events and post them on our website.
UPCOMING: Our next Lit Chat event will feature Charlie Berger — veterinarian, world traveler and lecturer, and author of the memoir Born to Go, with Erin Donahue, Sunday, October 15 on Zoom at 3 p.m. Pacific Time.
