Hart's new book unveiled at fundraiser

The LandTrust for Central North Carolina and Piedmont Land Conservancy are offering a special pre-publication release of “Iron House,” the new novel from bestselling author John Hart.
The event will be Saturday, July 9, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the O. Henry Hotel, 624 Green Valley Road, in Greensboro.
The “Iron House” national release date will be July 12. Hart will discuss “Iron House,” his prior novels and his passion for land conservation. Tickets are $125 per person or $225 per couple and include one signed copy of “Iron House.”
Guests may also include the event and stay overnight at the O. Henry Hotel for a rate of $350 per couple. Additional copies of the book may be ordered. Proceeds from the event will support The LandTrust for Central North Carolina and the Piedmont Land Conservancy, the two nonprofit land trusts serving North Carolina’s Piedmont region.
“I am committed to preserving the natural landscape of North Carolina and delighted my new book can help sustain the important work of these two outstanding organizations,” says Hart. “I look forward to sharing ‘Iron House’ with my friends and supporters at this special pre-publication event.”
Hart’s first novel, “The King of Lies,” was set in Rowan County, where the author spent part of his childhood. Publishers Weekly named it one of the Best Books of the Year and it spent multiple weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.
His subsequent books, “Down River” and “The Last Child,” both earned spots on the New York Times bestseller list and each earned the prestigious Edgar Award for Best Mystery Novel of the Year.
“Iron House” is Hart’s most accomplished thriller yet. The story of a New York mob enforcer, his younger brother, and the brutal North Carolina orphanage where an act of violence continues to shape their adult lives, “Iron House” has been called a “gut-wrenching, heart-stopping thriller no reader will soon forget.”
Booklist raves: “Hart’s first three thrillers have been greeted by an ever-growing crescendo of praise … and, yet, ‘Iron House’ lifts Hart to an altogether new level of excellence. … An unforgettable novel from a master or popular fiction.”
“Many know John is one of the finest new authors in the country, but this event gives us the chance to highlight his longtime dedication to land conservation,” says Jason Walser, executive director of The LandTrust for North Carolina.
“We’re excited to host one of North Carolina’s best authors at one of the state’s finest hotels,” adds Kevin Redding, executive director of the Piedmont Land Conservancy. “This promises to be a great night for book lovers and supporters of both our organizations.”
Space is limited to approximately 175 people. The event is anticipated to sell out. It includes a local-food emphasis dinner menu with such items as paella and polenta with wines for purchase from Shelton and Childress vineyards.
