Aug. 22 – Mark Powell (The Sheltering) at Pawleys Plantation
In this, his fourth novel, Powell broadens the Southern backdrop of his earlier work into a sprawling thriller taking readers from the Middle East to Charleston, southern Georgia, Tampa, Miami, New Orleans and into the storied American West. In its themes, perspectives and pacing, The Sheltering recalls the work of Robert Stone, Jim Harrison and Ben Fountain while further establishing Powell as a unique voice capable of interrogating unfathomable truths with a beauty and cohesion of language that challenges our assumptions of the human spirit. Novelist Ron Rash has deemed Powell “the best Appalachian novelist of his generation.”
