Description:
Radford Public Library presents An Evening with Author Sharyn McCrumb on Wednesday, October 25, 2017.

New York Times bestselling author Sharyn McCrumb will talk about her newest book, "An Unquiet Grave", released on September 12, 2017. "An Unquiet Grave" is a finely wrought novel set in nineteenth-century West Virginia, based on the true story of one of the strangest murder trials in American history, the case of the Greenbrier Ghost.

Following a suicide attempt and consigned to a segregated insane asylum, attorney James P. D. Gardner finds himself under the care of Dr. James Boozer. Fresh out of medical school, Dr. Boozer is eager to try the new talking cure for insanity, and encourages his elderly patient to reminisce about his experiences as the first black attorney to practice law in nineteenth-century West Virginia. Gardner's most memorable case was the one in which he helped to defend a white man on trial for the murder of his young bride, a case that the prosecution based on the testimony of a ghost.
