Author Event: Jim Hamilton
Page 158 Books is excited to welcome Jim Hamilton to celebrate his new book THE LAST ENTRY as well as the birthdays of both publisher Shari Smith and our very own Dave Lucey!
THE LAST ENTRY is painted in the woodland tones of western North Carolina’s rural mountains—a cultural crossroads of post-modern Appalachia where old-time traditions clash with a rapidly changing world. Jim Hamilton weaves his expertise of natural history into a story and characters which reflect the region’s burgeoning diversity, its struggles with poverty, and a black-market economy still tied to its land and forests.
Tucker Trivette is in a bind. He joined the Navy straight out of high school. Without many options, it seemed like the right thing to do. Now he’s heading home … to what, he’s not sure, but he’s hoping things are better. They’re not. Set upon by hard times and a childhood nemesis, Tucker seeks redemption and reward hidden deep in the forest, to reclaim a legacy hinted at within his grandfather’s cryptic journal. Tucker understands the value of friendship and family—and paying his debts. Determined to play the hand he’s been dealt to start over and succeed, he’ll have to bend the rules to get there.
