Brazilian author to sign books May 7

Brazilian native and current Charlotte resident Marli Seiburger will be the featured author for the Saturday Salon at Literary Bookpost on Saturday, May 7, beginning at 1:30 p.m..
Seiburger was born in Minas Gerais, Brazil, and as a teenager she wrote plays and speeches and went on to become a school teacher. In 1976, she moved to Miami where she lived for 23 years. She got married and had her only son, Guillermo. She is fluent in three languages and worked 19 years for the school system. In 2006, she retired and moved to Charlotte.
ěDiamonds and Mildewî is an exciting story about family legacy and diamonds. It reveals how ambition charms many lives as well as how fast money determines the course of their misery. It is quite an epic story, rich in dangerous endeavors, striking characters and shocking plots.
The saga of the Merlenes dynasty starts in the streets of Paris in the 19th century and hastens throughout America, Brazil, South Africa and Greece.
The driving ambition of a young man sets the ground for many generations of his family to engage in the reckless and vicious episodes of destiny. The fascinating life of each character, who dreams, loves, deceives and kills meticulously, entangles with those who keep the faith, the loyalty and the devastating secret of the family.
Literary Bookpost is at 110 S. Main St. in downtown Salisbury. For additional information about this event, call 704-630-9788 or visit www.literarybookpost. com.
