David Joy Book Launch

City Lights Bookstore and the Jackson County Public Library will co-host the launch of David Joy’s third novel on Tuesday, August 14th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the Jackson County Public Library. The Line That Held Us is a story of friendship and family, a tale balanced between destruction and redemption, where the only hope is to hold on tight, clenching to those you love. What will you do for the people who mean the most, and what will you grasp when all that you have is gone?

David Joy is the author of The Weight of This World and Where All Light Tends to Go, an Edgar finalist for Best First Novel. His stories and creative nonfiction have appeared in a number of publications, and he is the author of the memoir Growing Gills: A Fly Fisherman's Journey.

Donna Everhart Reading and Book Signing

Donna Everhart will visit City Lights Bookstore on Friday, August 17th at 6:30 p.m. to present her new novel The Road to Bittersweet. Set in the Carolinas in the 1940s, a young woman reckons not just with the unforgiving landscape, but with the rocky emotional terrain that leads from innocence to wisdom as jealousy and betrayal threaten to accomplish what hardship never could--divide the family for good.


USA Today bestselling author Donna Everhart grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina, and has lived close to her hometown for most of her life. For several years she worked for high tech companies, specializing in project management and product introduction. She carries a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. She lives in Dunn, North Carolina, with her husband, and a tiny, heart-stealing Yorkshire terrier, named Mister.
