On September 26th the Gwinnett County Public Library will host an upscale weekday luncheon with New York Times bestselling author of twenty five novels Stuart Woods as he embarks on his national book tour to promote his newest novel Severe Clear, and his memoir, Blue Water, Green Skipper.
An amazingly prolific author, Stuart Woods has written dozens of compelling thrillers, juggling stand-alone novels with four successful series. His most popular protagonists are New York cop-turned-attorney Stone Barrington, introduced in 1991's New York Dead, and plucky Florida police chief Holly Barker, who debuted in 1998's Orchid Beach.
His pleasing mix of high-octane action, likable characters, and sly, subversive humor has made him a hit with millions of readers who have returned the favor by consistently propelling his books to the top of the bestseller lists. Mr. Woods won the Edgar Award for Chiefs, 1981 and the Grand Prix de Litérature Policière for Imperfect Strangers in 1995.
The “Lunch & Listen” series is a new way to bring authors and readers together, providing the ultimate food for thought with a wide range of authors -- from bestselling mystery writers, to award-winning regional novelists to nonfiction and cookbook authors.
