Book Talk: Troubling the Ashes

The public is invited to a reading by Shirley A. Aaron, author of Troubling the Ashes, on Wednesday, July 13 at 4 p.m. at Pebble Hill. 

Troubling the Ashes is a work of historical fiction set in the turbulent 1960s when the integration of schools was bringing out the worst in people. The book's narrator, Marley Jane, and her family are living through the aftermath of a school burned to the ground by an unknown perpetrator in a small, Alabama town divided by hate. 

Shirley A. Aaron is a retired teacher and media specialist. She is the author of Drops of Light, a book of poetry.

The event is free, open to the public, and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing. The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities at Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street, Auburn. The historic 1847 Scott-Yarbrough house, known as Pebble Hill, will be open for tours from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
