Charles Frazier | Varina

Wed, April 4, 2018 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

Cold Mountain, Charles Frazier’s “rare and extraordinary” (San Francisco Chronicle) Whitman-esque Civil War odyssey of love, separation, and desertion, won the National Book Award, was adapted by Anthony Minghella into an Oscar-winning film, and was the 2016 One Book, One Philadelphia featured selection. His other bestselling novels are Nightwoods and Thirteen Moons, both period pieces set in Frazier’s beloved native North Carolina. In his new novel, Frazier returns to the time of Cold Mountain to tell the story of Varina Howell, wife of the much older Jefferson Davis and the only First Lady the Confederate States of America would ever have.
