Ted Geltner heads back into the beating heart of Harry Crews country on August 27th to discuss and sign Blood, Bone, and Marrow at The Bookshelf in the charming Southern town of Thomasville, GA. Many South Georgia readers certainly have cause to celebrate this biography of an author who rose up from right there in their midst and soared to literary heights unimaginable for a poor rural boy. If you've never 'met' Harry Crews, the introduction to his life and works won't get any better than this!
"My daddy literally worked himself to death, as a tenant farmer, as a great many men and women did. My ma says he worked himself to death at the age of 31. His heart, his whole chest, blew out like a tire blows out."—Harry Crews
"The Bookshelf has been a South Georgia staple for years, functioning both as a hotbed of literary talent and a showcase for local artists and instructors. We love books and paper and interesting conversations, and we believe a life enriched by books is the very best kind of life. The Bookshelf is open from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, with extended hours for special events and occasional weekends.
