One of America’s most popular authors, Jan Karon, joins us to talk about her latest, eagerly anticipated novel, ”In the Company of Others: A Father Tim Novel.” Karon’s novels, marvels of gentle, arresting storytelling, have sold tens of millions of copies, and there are over 30 million in print, making her one of the country’s top bestselling authors. In the latest novel, Father Timothy Kavanagh and Cynthia arrive on the west coast of Ireland to research his ancestry and encounter some very unexpected, surprising activities. Karon’s Mitford novels, set in a small North Carolina town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, include ”A Light in the Window,” ”At Home in Mitford,” and ”Out to Canaan.”This will be one of only seven stops in the author’s fall tour around the country. A new edition of her ”Mitford Cookbook and Kitchen Reader” is being released at the same time. DOORS WILL OPEN AT 6 P.M. NO ADVANCE TICKETS OR RESERVATIONS, FIRST COME-FIRST SEATED. Please note: There will be signed copies of the author’s new book available for purchase at this event, but the author will not sign books there; you are invited to a reception to meet her after the program.
