Man in the Blue Moon Featured in This Fall’s 'SOKY Reads!'

Booklist says “Morris has created a magical portrait of a rural southern town on the brink of personal and global change…It is a beautifully written and deeply memorable story of abandonment and loss and the redemptive powers of hard work, faith, and forgiveness.”
 
Free copies of the book will be distributed at 5 p.m. Aug. 22 at Warren County Public Library and from 12:30 to 1 p.m. Sept. 4 at the main campus of Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College.

Morris will lead a workshop “Writing Southern Fiction” at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at Western Kentucky University’s Cherry Hall, Room 125. The workshop is free and open to the public. He will also be speaking and signing books at the Warren County Public Library on State Street in Bowling Green at 6 p.m. that day.
