Teacher, preacher and storyteller Victoria Casey McDonald will discuss her new book Under the Light of Darkness at 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12. Under the Light of Darkness is a historical fictional account of her great-grandparent’s romance as slaves in the antebellum South. McDonald says of her book, “It is an attempt to share with the reader that a slave’s life was never his or her own...for a slave worked from sunrise to sunset. Only after dark was a slave’s life his or her own. Hence, this book relates the events of the slaveholder with the slave’s life being the main objective."

McDonald is the author of The African Americans of Jackson County and Just Over the Hill, books highlighting the history of the African Americans in Appalachia. To reserve a copy, or for more information, call City Lights Bookstore at 586-9499.
