Robert Olmstead, author of the current Book Sense bestselling novel Coal Black Horse, will be at Literary Bookpost on Friday around 11 a.m. to sign copies of his book for the shop and visit with patrons who happen to be in the shop.
The recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship and an NEA grant, Olmstead is a professor at Ohio Wesleyan University and the author of five previous books.Coal Black Horse is a novel set during the Civil War and is about a mother who sends her 14-year-old son off to the battlefields to find her husband and bring him home. A coal black horse paves the sons way, showing him boldness, bravery and self-possession. Yet, though the young man proves his bravery and perseverance, he still suffers the brutality of war.
Olmstead will be at the Bookpost for only a short visit, stopping in as a favor from Algonquin Press as he travels between formal signings in Charlotte and the Raleigh area. Literary Bookpost is at 119 S. Main St. For more information, call 704-630-9788.
