Theresa Crater and Jennifer Kincheloe will speak about and sign their new books, School of Hard Knocks and The Woman in the Camphor Trunk, on Tuesday, January 30th at 7:30pm.
About School of Hard Knocks:
In Theresa Crater’s novel, School of Hard Knocks, the segregation lines are clear in 1950s North Carolina, but the bloodlines — not so much. The past and present intertwine when Maggie Winters risks a friendship with a white woman, Lily, and finds that Lily and her daughter Caroline are being abused by the same family that tormented Maggie as a young girl in the 1890s.
About The Woman in the Camphor Trunk:
Los Angeles, 1908. Police matron Anna Blanc and her former sweetheart, Detective Joe Singer, discover the body of a white missionary woman, stuffed in a trunk in the apartment of her Chinese lover. Joe and Anna work to solve the crime and keep the death a secret before news of the murder is leaked and Chinatown explodes in The Woman in the Camphor Trunk.
