We are honored to be able to host George Dawes Green, founder of The Moth, on the day of publication of his new book The Kingdoms of Savannah. George will join us to discuss his new book and whatever else is on your mind. And, of course, he will gladly sign copies of The Kingdoms of Savannah. Seating will be somewhat limited so be sure to get here by 6.
The Kingdoms of Savannah is an edgy, fast-paced literary thriller about an eccentric, dysfunctional Savannah family that owns a defunct private detective agency, and the secrets that emerge as they investigate a murder and a disappearance, from master storyteller and founder of The Moth, George Dawes Green.
Steeped in the atmosphere of Savannah and also its seedy history and long history of shameful secrets. Editor Jamie Raab read the just the first two lines of the book at our launch meeting, and they do pull you right in: “A soft spring night in Savannah. In an hour Luke will be murdered, stabbed to death, and Stony will be snatched off the streets and hurled into darkness, but for now it’s just the two of them walking to their favorite bar for a nightcap.”
