Speaker @ the Center to Feature Author Eric Morris

Join us on Thursday, February 25, from noon to 1:00 p.m. for Speaker @ the Center, featuring author Eric Morris. Jacob Jump, the dark and meticulously crafted first novel from Eric Morris, follows a weeklong ill-fated boating trip down the Savannah River from Augusta, Georgia, to the lighthouse at Tybee Island. Chance and danger trump planning and intention at every turn, and the pull of the historic river and of fate itself propels Morris's characters with unrelenting force.
