HUNTSVILLE – Popular novelist Greg Iles will appear at the first installment of Community Conversations, a quarterly series with popular authors sponsored by Huntsville Library Foundation.

Chan Auditorium on the University of Alabama in Huntsville campus will host the inaugural session of Community Conversation on Sept. 3 at 7 p.m. A reception and book signing will follow the program.

“Huntsville Library Foundation promises an evening of lively conversation when Iles returns to town,” Laura McPhail said. McPhail recently accepted the position of Director of Public Relations for Huntsville-Madison County Public Library.

“Mississippi novelist Greg Iles writes about racial injustice, corruption and family ties — fuel for conversation — in his new thriller, ‘The Bone Tree,” McPhail said. “Iles will read from ‘The Bone Tree,’ the newly released second book in the ‘Natchez Burning’ trilogy.”

“Greg Iles created a world in this novel that many of us can relate to, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss the book’s themes with him,” Huntsville Library Foundation chairperson Christina Tabereaux said. “Greg’s book is the perfect choice to start our new Community Conversations series.”

Local moderators will facilitate a question-and-answer session with Iles. The session is designed to get people speaking with the author and with each other about the book’s themes.

Tickets to Community Conversations with Greg Iles are $25 for general admission. Students with a current ID will be admitted free.

Seating is limited so tickets will be sold first come, first served. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance online at store.hmcpl.org. All proceeds benefit Huntsville Library Foundation.

Founded in 1986, Huntsville Library Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization that serves as a library advocate and acquires resources that enhance the library’s value to the community. This team of dedicated individuals works year-round to raise funds for the library’s 12 branches to better serve Madison County. (huntsvillelibraryfoundation.org)
