Cynthia Newberry Martin & Lee Zacharias Reading and Book Signing

This will be a delightful double-feature with two talented novelists reading from each other’s books and talking about what their stories have in common. No long readings. Lots of fun. Books connect us, so come join the conversation at City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, November 19th at 3 p.m. Cynthia Newberry Martin, author of Tidal Flats, reached out to us last summer and proposed that she bring her 50-state book tour through Sylva. We are so pleased that this is going to work out, particularly since it will mean Lee Zacharias will return to City Lights for this leg of Cynthia's tour. Lee will give us a sense of her latest novel, What a Wonderful World This Could Be.   

Cynthia Newberry Martin's first novel, Tidal Flats, won the Gold Medal in Literary Fiction at the 2020 Independent Publisher Book Awards and the 14th Annual National Indie Excellence Award for Fiction. Martin's second novel, Love Like This, will be published in April of 2023. She holds an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts and has served as the Review Editor for Contrary Magazine and the Writing Life Editor for Hunger Mountain. Her website features the How We Spend Our Days series, over a decade of essays by writers on their lives. She grew up in Atlanta and now lives in Columbus, Georgia, with her husband, and in Provincetown, Massachusetts, in a little house by the water.
