All gifts to MAC make a big difference. On behalf of the MAC staff, board, and volunteers, thank you for your support this Lenten season.

Novel Theology Presents: Ghost on Black Mountain by Ann Hite

Facilitator: Clark Lemons
Wed., April 15, 7:00 p.m. in the Parish House

Told from five strong women’s voices, Ann Hite’s debut novel explores mother/daughter relationships and domestic violence in the thirties, themes readers may find even more haunting than the ghosts, who are metaphors for the emotions in this book. Ghost On Black Mountain was a finalist for the esteemed Townsend Prize and Hite won Georgia Author of the Year in 2012. This novel also celebrates good old-fashion storytelling! Author Ann Hite will join us for a discussion of her book.
