Karen Zacharias Reading and Signing
Karen Zacharias will be doing a reading and signing from her newest novel Christian Bend 7 p.m. Tuesday September 5 at the Hub City Bookshop.
Christian Bend isn't the kind of place where one expects to find the sorts of secrets the widow Burdy Luttrell has been harboring. Tucked in the hills of East Tennessee, Christian Bend is a place of piercing beauty, where the rivers and love run constant. A community of people who care for each other, the land, the music, and the stories that bind them. It's called Christian Bend because so many people who settled the area shared the same last name, Christian. It's a name they all tried to live up to.
Even so, Burdy never could bring herself to tell Rain Hurd the truth about his father. She'd always meant to, but put it off until that day she was nearly killed in the shooting at Bean Station. As soon as he heard about the shooting, Rain left his job in Rhode Island and flew to Burdy's bedside at that Knoxville hospital. That's when Burdy told him about the letters.
Karen Spears Zacharias grew up in a military family. Her father was killed in action in 1966. That early experience led Karen into a career as a journalist. She studied at Berry College, Oregon State University and Eastern Oregon University.
Karen has worked at newspapers around the country. Her commentary has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Newsweek, CNN, National Public Radio and The Huffington Post. A lecturer at Central Washington University, Karen enjoys conducting workshops. She has spoken at the Library of Congress, at the National Mall in DC, and at various universities and colleges. Karen has appeared on Good Morning America and twice on The Diane Rehm Show. (She’s hoping for an invitation from 1A).
