Writers’ group welcomes local author

Heather Newton, author of Under the Mercy Trees, will be the speaker for the Mountain Writers’ Network at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12, at Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville.

Under the Mercy Trees, a tale of family, love and redemption, is Newton’s debut novel, though her short stories have appeared in regional and national publications. Newton lives in Asheville, where she is an author and mediator.

Mountain Writers of North Carolina meets on the second Tuesday of each month to advance the professional interests of creative writers through networking, advocacy and education.
