Cavalier House Books will be hosting New York Times bestselling author Julie Cantrell along with specialists in the area of human trafficking in a panel discussion about her new novel The Feathered Bone on Saturday, February 27 beginning at 10am at the Livingston Parish District Courthouse located at 20300 Government Boulevard in Livingston.
Many authors set out to write ‘important’ novels about ‘big issues’ that are meant to be buoyed by the stories that are pervasive throughout the culture at the moment. These are sometimes met with success, but Julie Cantrell’s The Feathered Bone is a different breed. This is absolutely an important novel with a big issue at its core (especially for those of us along the I-12 Corridor), but it is not meant to be buoyed by stories of missing girls – this is not a novel that feeds on the news. This is a novel that serves its subjects.
