Charles Todd, the New York Times best-selling author of popular historical mystery novels, will introduce the new novel, A Question of Honor, at a special event at the Sidney Lanier Center for Literary Arts in Macon.
Mother and son writing duo, Caroline and Charles Todd, write under the name Charles Todd. They have written two series—one featuring a nurse during WWI and the other, a Scotland Yard detective immediately after WWI.
Their reading and signing at the Lanier Center for Literary Arts is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 29.
The public is invited to hear Todd speak in the sanctuary of High Street Unitarian Universalist Church located at 1085 High Street, starting at 6 p.m.
A wine and cheese reception will be held beforehand at the Sidney Lanier Cottage located at 935 High Street from 5:30-6 p.m.
Admission to both events will be free for Historic Macon members, $5 for non-members and $3 for students. Parking is available on the street and in the First Baptist Church parking lot on High Street.
The writing doy will stop in Macon for one night before appearing at the Decatur Book Fair on Labor Day weekend. This event will kick off the launch of Todd’s newest novel, A Question of Honor, which is a Bess Crawford mystery.
