Middle Georgia book lovers are in for a treat as the Lanier Center for Literary Arts presents New York Times best-selling mother and son writing duo Charles Todd on Thursday at the Sidney Lanier Cottage.
The pair, Charles and Caroline Todd, have written two standalone novels in addition to two historical mystery series set in the World War I era, one featuring the character Ian Rutledge, a Scotland Yard detective, and the other featuring Bess Crawford, a nurse during the war.
Their latest Bess Crawford novel, A Question of Honor, is being released Tuesday and follows the amateur detective as she investigates a murder that occurred in India while her father was stationed there during her childhood.
This is a special Sidneys Salon event and not part of our summer series, which features Macon authors, said Nicole Kubas, marketing and public relations director for Historic Macon. Janis (Haley) has lined up a lot of great authors, both seasonal and in the series.
A wine and cheese reception for the authors will begin at 5:30 p.m., and admission includes both events.
The Lanier Center for Literary Arts was created by the Historic Macon Foundation to honor of the legacy of writer and musician Sidney Lanier, who was born in Macon
