Arts & Entertainment Kathryn Magendie to read from new novel, ‘Sweetie’ at City Lights in Sylva

Kathryn Magendie of Haywood County will be at City Lights to read from her new novel, entitled Sweetie, on Saturday afternoon, Jan. 22, at 2 p.m.

Magendie’s acclaimed 2009 novel, “Tender Graces,” received praise from regional and national reviewers alike as well as being a popular staff pick at City Lights. This event is an opportunity to hear this talented author read from and discuss her work.

Sweetie is a wild girl — rough, almost feral, yet brave and endlessly honest.

When Melissa, a shy, town girl who speaks with a stutter, befriends her, the two quickly enrich each other’s lonely lives. Indeed, for Melissa, Sweetie is a symbol of pride and strength. But to many townspeople, Sweetie is an outcast, a sinister force, or worse. Magendie calls her work “a Southern novel in the classic tradition."

Magendie will read from “Sweetie” and take questions and comments from the audience. An autographing will follow her remarks, and her previous novels will also be available for purchase and signing. For more information, call City Lights at (828)586-9499.
