Book store hosts authors, including LPJ writer, during Peach Fest

Wesley Harris, one of the writers for Lincoln Parish Journal, will join other authors at No. 9 Books and Records during the Peach Festival for a Meet the Authors event.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature Harris, Richard Gerald Shrubb and Joel Crowson.

Harris works for the Claiborne Parish Library in Homer as the parish historian. He researches, writes and speaks on north Louisiana History with his specialty in Reconstruction Era crime. Harris is the author of five books, including “Greetings from Ruston” and “Fish Out of Water,” and he will be signing all books from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Shrubb is a career educator and first-time novelist. “Raise My Ebenezer” is a genre-bending model of paraprosdokian humor, deep-South noir, and Transgressive Fiction following the plot lines of Dante’s Inferno. He will be signing his book from noon to 2 p.m.

From 2-4 p.m., Crowson will be signing his first novel, “Play the Game.” His book is based on the personal journal and real-life tragedy of his great uncle, Thomas Neal Crowson.
