Questioning the ‘Queen of Southern storytelling’ Author talks about book ‘Moonrise’

Literary Luncheon with best-selling author Cassandra King When: Noon to 1 p.m. Friday Where: Chattahoochee Country Club, 3000 Club Drive, Gainesville Cost: $40 including lunch and hardcover book

BY MEREDITH PRUITT

mpruitt@gainesvilletimes.com Not many who read books would consider a British story to be a proper launching pad for a classic, Southern story. But with her novel, “Moonrise,” author Cassandra King decided to think outside the box and draw inspiration from a gothic British novel. Based on the classic book, “Rebecca,” King tells a story of a middle-aged woman who marries a widower. Conflict arises for the main character when her newlywed husband’s circle of friends try to push her away. The journey continues as she wonders if she will ever be accepted or loved. A New York Times bestselling author, King has been named the “Queen of Southern storytelling.” She is the author of four other novels as well as various short stories and essays. The Alabama native lives with her husband, author Pat Conroy, in South Carolina. Inspired by the stories of the South, King continues writing with the inspiration of her readers. She will meet some of them and sell copies of her new book at the Literary Luncheon on Friday at the Chattahoochee Country Club in Gainesville. The Times asks King about her book and why this story is so important to her personally. Question: This book was inspired by the 1983

novel, “Rebecca,” by Daphne Du Maurier. Why did you decide to make a modern, Southern tale based on this story?

Answer: I didn’t intend to. It wasn’t a planned thing. But I was already working on a novel about a wife (wondering about

her husband’s late wife), and she’s coming into this situation and wondering if she’ll be accepted and so forth.

And I just had to re-read “Rebecca.” So I just re-read that and realized that it was very similar to the story that I was working on. Q: How did you create a unique story set apart from the original novel? A: Well I had to do that because it’s not a retelling of “Rebecca.” I guess you do have to go through her estate or publisher or something to get permission to do a retelling, for one thing, and I didn’t set out to do that because that’s British and this is Southern. I have a lot of my usual Southern characters in this one. It has its own unique voice. Q: You have been called the “Queen of Southern storytelling.” Why do you think that title came about? Do you agree with it at all? A: That was something a reviewer one time said in a newspaper, and unfortunately someone picked up on that. I think it’s a play on my name. Something like “King” to “Queen,” or something like that. It’s kind of like my husband, who wrote “The Prince of Tides,” called the “Prince of Storytelling.” I would never call myself that. I like it as far as the storytelling part, because I think telling a story is what it’s about. I have degrees in English, so some wonderful

literature that I had to teach and study and so forth is great writing, conflict and theme. But stories (are better). I like what I read to have a story. Q: What made you so interested in becoming an author? A: I just always loved reading. I was one of these kids that always had my nose stuck in a book. Then I would try out my own hand at writing these stories, even when I was a kid. Q: Are you inspired to keep writing because of your readers’ response? What do you hope they will take away after reading the book? A: That does help so much. I didn’t realize how much it helped until the first time I got a positive response from readers. I think it’s very important for writers to hear this from their readers, that they like to hear this story and to keep writing. Let us know! What I wanted to do with this story is explore the growth of a mid-age woman. (I wanted my readers to see that) we never stop growing, no matter what age we are. She had a total change of her life in this book. So I wanted to do some exploring of how she grows in this situation. She has to go through a lot to do it, though. It’s not an easy process.

Delve into second Georgia Gold series book Author to sign copies of historical novel Sept. 28, Oct. 11 From staff reports Following closely on the success of “Sautee Shadows,” book one of The Georgia Gold Series, the second novel in the series, “The Gray Divide” has been released recently. Author Denise Weimer will sign copies of the novel at two fall signings in Gainesville. The first will be from 3-6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at Books-AMillion with the second 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11 during Mule Camp Market on the square at Frames You-Nique. The book is based in the halcyon days of the 1850s when Georgia’s coastal elite find a retreat in the foothills of Habersham County. There half-Cherokee Mahala Franklin goes nose to nose with arrogant rival hotel owner Jack Randall. Well aware she’s not of his

class — as her Cherokee friend Clay Fraser jealously reminds her – Mahala can’t ignore her attraction to the Savannah shipping entrepreneur any better than she can the clues about her father’s murder and missing gold left to her in his strongbox. Especially when her unlikely friendship with socialite Carolyn Calhoun constantly thrusts her into Jack’s circle. Carolyn’s life of privilege might seem a lark to Mahala, but Carolyn is expected to overcome her awkward personality and make a brilliant match between two very different men, rice planter Devereaux Rousseau and his minister brother Dylan. Can she even be sure of the love of the one she chooses, or will she merely be a prize? Hidden loyalties are exposed and relationships

threatened as Georgia seeks to become its own republic, only to be plunged into civil war. Faced with taking over his family’s shipping firm, Jack must choose between his Northern convictions and his Southern family, while Devereaux tests himself and his feelings for Carolyn on the battlefields of Virginia. “While I’d imagine the typical reader would be an adult female with an interest in history, I’ve included enough business and military action to lure men, and kept it clean enough for teenagers, who might have a special interest in book one where the main characters are coming to maturity,” Weimer said. The native Georgian earned her journalism degree with a minor in history from Asbury University. She is the

author of romantic novella “Redeeming Grace,” and her magazine articles about Northeast Georgia have appeared in numerous regional publications. Weimer is also a wife, mother of two daughters, and a lifelong living historian. She resided in Habersham County for 10 years before her husband’s job took the family to Watkinsville. The cover designs for the series will continue to feature paintings by acclaimed Georgia artist, John Kollock, whose family letters and diaries were consulted in research. For those who missed the release of book one, copies of “Sautee Shadows” will be available at both Gainesville signing events.

Listen to American history 31ST ANNIVERSARY Film program explores evolution of U.S. music From staff reports Cinema enthusiasts will have great films to choose from this fall as the University of North Georgia host a film series. “America’s Music: A Film History of Our Most Popular Music,” features documentary film screenings and scholarled discussions of 20th-century music. Benjamin Schoening, a UNG assistant professor of music, will lead discussions about the historical context and social impact of each musical genre. “When looking at any culture, an exploration and understanding of music is paramount to understanding the overall historical fabric, values and norms of that culture,” Schoening said. “The popular musical genres and styles that developed within the United States are both a fusion of many world cultures coming together in the United States and yet, at the same time, something that is uniquely our own that others around the world have chosen to emulate.” “America’s Music,” which started Sept.

14, explores a different, uniquely American musical genre’s influence on life during Saturday sessions. All sessions are free and begin at 4 p.m. on UNG’s Gainesville campus. Sessions will last about 90 minutes to two hours. Light refreshments will be provided, and RSVPs are appreciated to emily.thornton@ung.edu or 678-717-3658. The “America’s Music” sessions are: ■■ Sept. 28: The music of Broadway and Tin Pan Alley are featured in an episode of the Emmy-winning series “Broadway: The American Musical.” ■■ Oct. 12: Swing jazz is covered in an episode of “Ken Burns’ Jazz” and the documentary “International Sweethearts of Rhythm.” ■■ Oct. 26: The history of country and bluegrass are traced in the documentary “High Lonesome: The Story of Bluegrass Music.” ■■ Nov. 9: The emergence of rock and roll is featured in an episode of “The History of Rock and Roll.” ■■ Nov. 23: Latin rhythms from mambo to hip hop are the subject of an episode of “Latin Music USA” and the award-winning film “From Mambo to Hip-Hop: A South Bronx Tale.”

INK teaches kids, adults to prepare for disaster From staff report Would you know what to do if a disaster struck your neighborhood? Would your child know what to do? Would you know whom to call? In most cases, INK leaders believe the answers would be no. That’s why INK — the Interactive Neighborhood for Kids — has planned its first Personal & Family Preparedness Fair to inform families what to do in emergencies and how to get help. The event will be 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29, at INK at 999 Chestnut St. in Gainesville. “This is the educational component of

preparedness for families and their children,” INK executive director Sheri Hooper said. “In case a disaster happens, instead of having these kids panic and become part of the problem, they could help be a solution to the problem.” On Sunday, INK will give each child, as long as supplies last, a backpack filled with items needed following a disaster. Items will include a flashlight, water, notepad, toothpaste and toothbrush. Bill Wittel, the fair’s liaison between public safety and the private sector, said the fair has two purposes: to teach families about personal

preparedness and to explain how local public safety agencies are able to respond more efficiently than ever before. For example, Gainesville/Hall County has installed an emergency-alert system, called Citizens Alert, to notify residents of an impending disaster, such as a tornado, in a matter of seconds. Then residents can respond before or after a disaster strikes. It also allows public safety agencies to get help from the public. Residents can download the Citizens Alert system onto their smart phones and other communication devices to receive the messages.

Sample the delicacies of downtown Clarkesville City hits fourth year of event in Habersham BY ANDREW AKERS

aakers@gainesvilletimes.com The annual event created to showcase downtown Clarkesville’s merchants will hit its fourth anniversary as A Taste of Clarkesville takes place Saturday on the square. “The city of Clarkesville went decades without a fall event, and this event was created specifically to highlight and promote all of our downtown eateries and shops,” said Leigh Johnston, chairwoman of the Clarkesville Business and Community Association. An expected 4,000 visitors will attend to enjoy local restaurants, live music, wine tastings, beer gardens and door prizes. More than 30 vendors, 25 restaurants, five area wineries and two microbreweries will participate. One of the two beer gardens will be hosted by the Terrapin Beer Co., an Athens-based brewery that has skyrocketed to fame in the past 10 years. Three live performances will be on the square. The main act is The Chattahoochee Chain Gang, an Americana-bluegrass band. In addition, two local musicians, Chad Garret and Mat Fried, will play. Tickets for food or drink tastings will be sold at a booth the day of the event. Each ticket represents one

taste and cost a dollar, though 25 tickets can be purchased for $20. Souvenir wine or beer glasses can be purchased for $10 and each comes with five tickets. A Taste of Clarkesville is hosted by the Clarkesville Business and Community Association, Clarkesville Main Street and the city of Clarkesville. It has steadily grown during the past four years and this year’s event will have the most vendors in its history. Clarkesville is a small city, with only about 1,700 residents, and the revenue from the event has raised

a lot of money, Johnston said. In its first three years, it raised more than $70,000 and helped fund projects such as the new gateway signs drivers pass when entering the city. “This is a huge deal,” Johnston said. “We are a very small town and this is an important fundraiser for promotions and beautification projects for downtown Clarkesville.” The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, on the square in Clarkesville. For more information, call 706968-2801 or visit www. tasteofclarkesville.com.
