City Lights Bookstore will host discussions and book signings for two novelists — Bob Plott and Harold Littleton — during the next two weekends.
Plott will present his latest book Colorful Characters of the Great Smoky Mountains at 6:30 p.m., May 26. His book details the legendary lives of a few fascinating people that have lived in the Smoky Mountains. Whether it is French and Indian War hero, Captain Kennedy or Plott’s relative Von Plott, he crafts each narrative to honor the legacy of some of most interesting and influential people of the area.
Harold Littleton will present his historical novel, Jesus A Would Be King, at 2 p.m., June 2. The novel is about two families in the first century of the common era that shaped the course of history. Their quest for power set them on a collision path that shook the empire to its core, altered a thousand-year-old religious tradition and initiated a redefined expectation that dominates religious understanding to this day. This novel takes the reader through a journey that explores several controversial issues regarding the life of Jesus.
