Ron Rash Reading--Get the New Novel and Reserved Seats for the Reading!

Ron Rash's new novel, Above the Waterfall, is scheduled for release on September 8th.  Ron will discuss his new novel at Blue Ridge Books on Saturday, October 17 at 11:00 am.  The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.  A ticket for two reserved seats is included with the advance purchase of the book.

In this poetic and haunting tale set in contemporary Appalachia, New York Times bestselling author Ron Rash illuminates lives shaped by violence and a powerful connection to the land.
Les, a longtime sheriff, is just weeks from retirement when he is forced to contend with the ravages of crystal meth and his own corruption in his small Appalachian town. Meanwhile, Becky, a park ranger with a harrowing past, finds solace amid the lyrical beauty of the North Carolina mountains.
Enduring the mistakes and tragedies that have indelibly marked them, they are drawn together by a reverence for the natural world. When an embittered elderly local is accused of poisoning a trout stream on the property of a nearby resort, Les and Becky are plunged into deep and dangerous waters, forced to navigate currents of disillusionment and betrayal that will force them to question themselves and test their tentative bond and threaten to carry them over the edge.
