Author Andrew King Brings Historical Tale of Budding Artists in Rural America to Sundays@4
Join us on Sunday, May 20 when BRG's Sundays@4 series welcomes Baton Rouge based author Andrew King for a reading from his new historical novel, A World in Yellow Leaf. The book offers a poignant tale of two young budding artists living in rural America as they bond in a secret garden and learn about friendship, community, and themselves.
While growing up in the rural Midwest during the mid-twentieth century, Jack Blair and his friend Billy Coffin are drawn to a small walled garden behind Billy's grandfather's house. Sometimes they open the door to the garden and stare at the covered trellis, imagining they are glimpsing another realm into a secret world. But one day, after they are invited into the garden, Jack and Billy realize that the world behind the door holds something vital to their happiness - peace.
Andrew King is professor emeritus at Louisiana State University, where he formerly held the Hopkins Chair of Communication. He is the author of several academic books. This is his first work of fiction.
As with all Sundays@4 presentations, this event is open to the public with no charge for admission.
