Book Signing at Carmichael's: Alecia Whitaker
Carmichael's is thrilled to welcome back one of our favorite authors Alecia Whitaker for a reading from and signing of her new novel for teens "Wildflower." Whitaker was here in 2012 for a signing for her bestseller "The Queen of Kentucky," now out in paperback. Now here's a little description about "Wildflower": Bird Barrett has grown up on the road, singing backup in her family's bluegrass band and playing everywhere from Nashville, Tennessee, to Nowhere, Oklahoma. But one fateful night, when Bird fills in for her dad by singing lead, a scout in the audience offers her a spotlight all her own. With Bird's star on the rise the rest of her life falls into chaos as tradition and ambition collide. Can Bird break out while staying true to her roots?

Wilton Barnhardt Reading and Signing at Carmichael's
Carmichael's welcomes North Carolina novelist Wilton Barnhardt for a reading from his new novel, out in paperback June 24th, "Lookaway, Lookaway," a headlong, hilarious narrative of a family coming apart on the edge of the old South and the new, and an unforgettable woman striving to hold it together. Publishers Weekly called the novel "southern Gothic at its most decadent and dysfunctional. With each chapter dedicated to a different character one more self-indulgent and flawed than the last the sprawling saga of an esteemed clan's fall from grace and fortune spools out in fits and starts." A book signing will follow the reading. Please join us!
