Tami Rasmussen, resident of Franklin, will be speaking at 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23 at City Lights Bookstore to present her book, "Murmur."

Set in the Southern Appalachian Mountains of Franklin, North Carolina, "Murmur" is the narrative of a horrific murder and the shocking mystery that threatens the way of life in the remote location of White Rock Mountain and Hickory Gap.

Murder, mystery, fear, and great loss cloak this isolated mountain community. "Murmur" is about the mountain folks who live here and their perseverance during the tumultuous 1970s. Without electricity, telephone service, or running water, Sonny Branch is in her element.

Resisting modern amenities and lifestyle, she is a strong and capable mountain women. Love and despair brings Sonny  to her knees when outsiders threaten the kinship of all the colorful characters living in this small mountain commune.
