Thursday To-Do: Charlaine Harris

Posted By on Thu, Apr 1, 2010 at 9:39 AM


7:30 p.m., Reynolds Performance Hall, UCA, Conway. Free.

After pushing fiction from Brockmeier and Fitzgerald and memoirs from Rick Bragg and Shirley Abbott in years past, the Arkansas Center for the Book has given up. This year's charge is Charlaine Harris' 10 Sookie Stackhouse books, which sounds like a lot unless you've ever read one. But then again, as long as people are reading, who cares if it's trash? Especially if it's Arkansas trash. And while I'm qualifying everything, I should say that, if Alan Ball's HBO adaptation is any indication, Harris is the Tolstoy of the trash novel. So gather one and all, let's pile in Reynolds Hall and hear Harris talk about life in Magnolia with nine books on the New York Times bestseller list and line up to ask questions: Are there any more elastic metaphors than vampires? Has she's ever seen a werepanther in real life? And, most importantly, who's dreamier, Bill or Eric? A book signing will follow the lecture; reserve tickets via the UCA box office.
