Author Event at Last Friday
Hillsborough, NC 27278
The Alliance for Historic Hillsborough and St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church will host Joe Epley for a reading of his latest novel, “A Passel of Trouble,” at 7 pm on Friday, May 26. The reading will coincide with the Hillsborough Arts Council’s Last Fridays celebration and will take place at Hillsborough Presbyterian Church (102 W. Tryon St). The event co-sponsors will provide refreshments and the author will have books available for sale. Epley’s latest work of historical fiction is an exciting American Revolutionary War thriller based on the exploits of David Fanning, one of the most audacious, courageous, and notorious Loyalist partisans who created havoc in both Carolinas. Hillsborough was the setting for one of Fanning’s most daring feats when he captured Patriot Governor Thomas Burke on September 12, 1781.
