Sylva author, Jenny Bennett, returns to City Lights Bookstore on Friday, September 5th at 6:30 p.m. with her second book, The Twelve Streams of LeConte. The main character of the book lives in Sylva and there are scenes set in downtown, the library and even City Lights Bookstore. Anne Woodrow is on honeymoon in Scotland when fate gives her a slap in the face: right then and there, her new husband falls in love with another woman. Injured and grieving, she returns home alone and conceives of a project of renewal.  She will climb Mt. LeConte in the Smokies by way of the twelve streams that drain its slopes. Its a journey that will prove to be strenuous and dangerous. The Twelve Streams of LeConte brings together mirroring worlds of adventure tales and mountains.  It speaks the language of people who engage the landscape rather than admire it from a distance, and it unapologetically explores the life of a serious reader.

Jenny Bennett is also the author of Murder at the Jumpoff . Having hiked extensively in the area, she is well known in the Smokies hiking community for her blog, “Endless Streams and Forests.” To reserve copies of her books please call City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499.
