Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin today announced the February/March featured book for the Charleston Reads city-wide book club initiative. Murder on Staunton Road by Charlie Ryan & Mitch Evans will be the book club selection. The book club will meet and discuss the entire book on Tuesday, March 23 at 6 p.m. The discussion will contain a question and answer section with the authors.
“Murder on Staunton Road is a riveting book that shares a tragic piece of Charleston history,” said Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin. “I’m thrilled that Charlie & Mitch will be with us to share stories about their creative process and also give updates since the book was published.”
“It is an honor to receive this invitation. It is gratifying that ‘Murder On Staunton Road’ has received such enthusiastic response,” said author Charlie Ryan. “I look forward to a vibrant Q & A with our readers!”
“It is gratifying that our book has had such impact that readers are contacting us, almost daily, with their theories on who the murderer of Juliet Staunton Clark might have been. The upcoming Zoom session may provide even more insight regarding that question,” said author Mitch Evans.
This club is a partnership between the City of Charleston, Kanawha County Public Library, Taylor Books and Charleston resident Margaret McLeod Leef. This monthly club will, initially, be held via ZOOM video conference but will transition to in-person meetings once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
