Novelist about Southern sororities at Library Tuesday night

     Bestselling author Lisa Patton will be at the Laurens County Library on Tuesday October 2 at 7:00 pm. to talk about her writing, as well as her new book, Rush. 

     This latest novel was inspired by Lisa’s experiences as a sorority member at the University of Alabama, and born after a chance encounter with one of the sorority’s housekeepers, when she learned that most sorority and fraternity houses in the South don’t provide staff benefits. Lisa asked herself, “What if the staff’s story had a different ending? What if things could really change?”      

     Lisa Patton is the author of three other books including Whistlin’ Dixie in a Nor’easter, her bestselling semi-autobiographical story of a pampered southerner who ends up running an inn in Vermont.  

     Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Lisa graduated from the University of Alabama.

     The proud mother of two sons, and a four-legged furry daughter named Rosie, she and her husband live in Nashville.

     Join us to hear and learn more about Patton who writes about southerners and friendship with humor and heart.
