The highly awaited National Reading Group Month Signature Event to be held in Nashville at the Nashville Public Library Downtown on Saturday, October 12 (program, 9–11 a.m.; book-signing, 11-11:30 a.m.) brings to center stage best-selling authors Jill McCorkle (Life After Life, Algonquin Books), Cathie Pelletier (*The One-Way Bridge, Sourcebooks Landmark) and John Milliken Thompson (Love and Lament, Other Press) as well as debut authors Suzanne Rindell (*The Other Typist, Amy Einhorn Books) and Margaret Wrinkle (*Wash, Atlantic Monthly Press). Nashville Public Radio WPLN All Things Considered host Nina Cardona will lead the panel-program. For a fifth year in a row, the "coffee with authors" is an official part of the Southern Festival of Books — A Celebration of the Written Word, and is co-sponsored by the Nashville Public Library and Parnassus Books*Nashville — An Independent Bookstore for Independent People.
