Jerry Hurley Signing at Margaret Key Library

January 19, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

  • This event has passed.

A celebrated local favorite, Mr. Jerry Hurley will be speaking and signing copies of his book at the Apalachicola Margaret Key Public Library on Thursday, January 19 from 6-7:30 pm.
Wildcrafting and Other Stories I Share Only With My Friends records tales of Hurley’s youth growing up in Appalachia. The short story collection is made up of 36 poems and stories, which recount often humorous events from Hurley’s life, and the colorful personalities of his family and friends. A great-grandmother made and sold moonshine, while another grandmother became a Deputy Sheriff. Says Hurley, “Wildcrafting is a rollicking romp back in time, and while regional in nature, these stories transcend their Appalachian Mountain setting and will speak powerfully to many Americans who grew up in the 50s and 60s.” Do not miss this fantastic opportunity for a meet & greet with this well-known author!
