Edna Jones Padgett Book Signing

June 10 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Edna Jones Padgett returns to Yancey County for the signing of her novel, Shadows on the Mountain, the second book in her Blue Ridge Trilogy. The One of a Kind Art Gallery will be hosting a book signing on Saturday, June 10, 2017 from noon to 3:00 pm.

While new characters are introduced, readers will be pleased to discover that Shadows on the Mountain continues to follow the lives of the beloved characters from When the Owl Calls.

Edna discovered her love of writing at an early age. She went on to obtain a degree in nursing and worked in North Carolina and Florida. Always active in her local church, she has written and directed church dramas, as well, as taught Bible Studies to children and seniors. Edna is the mother of four children and now resides in the foothills of North Carolina, where she enjoys church, family, writing, and painting.

Having been born and raised in the Micaville area, Edna’s return to the area for this book signing is special to her heart. Her roots are deep in this part of the Blue Ridge, going back several generations. The rich Scots-Irish storytelling  inspired this trilogy of novels, set in the Blue Ridge Mountains during the Great Depression.

While in Micaville, Edna hopes to reunite with old friends and make new ones. Both of her novels will be available for purchase at the signing.

Micaville is located 4 miles east of Burnsville, 14 miles north of BRP milepost 344 at the intersection of Hwy 80 S and Micaville Loop on the Mt Mitchell Scenic Byway. Parking is available in front of the church, across the street in the empty lot and in the old Taylor Togs parking lot.
