One of the America’s finest writers, the Edgar Award-winning author Tom Franklin, visits us to talk about his most recent novel, the highly acclaimed  Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter. Critics havwe called it ”his most accomplished and resonant novel so far,” and readers agree. Set in rural Mississippi in the 1970s, the story centers on two men, once boyhood pals, who must face the consequences of a long-ago incident. It’s a powerful, riveting tale, brilliantly told by Franklin, the Alabama-born writer who is so very popular across the South. His prize-winning books include  Hell at the Breech, Poachers: Stories” and  Smonk: A Novel. He is on the faculty at the University of Mississippi where he holds the John and Renee Grisham Chair in Creative Writing.
