Book Talk with Butch Carroll

Book Talk with Butch Carroll

The public is invited to a book talk by Butch Carroll, author of Toker’s Blood on Thursday, October 30 at 4:00 p.m. at Pebble Hill (101 S. Debardeleben St., Auburn).

Toker's Blood is a novel about the "coming of age" in the tumultuous 1960's in a rural Southern town where no longer can the residents claim their insulated little hamlet is immune from big city crime. 

Butch Carroll was born in Columbus, Georgia and grew up in Hurtsboro, Alabama. He has a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in biology with double minors in chemistry and physics from Auburn University. After graduating from the University of Alabama in Birmingham School of Dentistry, Carroll practiced Pediatric Dentistry in Montgomery, Alabama, and in the Auburn-Opelika area for a total of thirty-seven years. His first book, Confederate Jasmine, is based on the wartime and life experiences of his great-great grandfather during the Civil War.

The event is free, open to the public, and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing. For more information on the program, call 334-844-4903 or visit
