In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, R.E.A.C.H. of Macon County is sponsoring a talk and book signing by Angela Dove, who is the author of “No Room for Doubt.” Her book is a nonfiction account of her family’s history and the investigation of her stepmother’s death.
Dove will be featured at two locations on Oct. 6. The first will be at St. Agnes Episcopal Church at 66 Church Street in Franklin, from 10 till 11:30 a.m. This is a tea and light brunch.
The second event is the same day in Highlands, at the newly renovated Hudson Library at 554 W. Main Street from 4 till 5:30 p.m. with coffee/tea and afternoon refreshments.
Dove is an award-winning humor columnist (First place, North Carolina Press Association) who enjoys crafting stories about small humorous moments in her columns or about the intricate web of human connectedness (as seen in her true crime memoir). Her blog, “Will Write for Chocolate,” offers tips and stories about living and parenting in gratitude. She also facilitates writers workshops and shares her stories at women’s inspirational conferences and crime survivors colloquia. In her spare time, Dove writes and directs dramas for churches.
Seating is limited and tickets are $20. Proceeds will go to R.E.A.C.H. domestic violence prevention programs.
R.E.A.C.H. is a non-profit agency that provides shelter and services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
