Two sisters—one bitter, one blind—their dark legacy, and a magical town lie at the heart of Daniel Wallace’s latest novel.

The acclaimed novelist will read from The Kings and Queens of Roam on Sept. 17 in the Wilson Special Collections Library’s Pleasants Family Assembly Room. The 5:30 p.m. event is free and open to the public.

Wallace is the J. Ross MacDonald Distinguished Professor of English at UNC. His other novels include Big Fish (1998), Ray in Reverse (2000), The Watermelon King (2003), and most recently Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician (2007).

Big Fish was made into a 2003 motion picture of the same name by Tim Burton. In the film, Wallace played the part of a professor at Auburn University.

Books will be available for sale and signing, courtesy of the Bull’s Head Bookshop.

The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
