Wonderland Book Club, Co-sponsored by the NC Writers’ Network
Presents Author Nancy Peacock, The Life and Times of Persimmon Wilson
Location: Center for Excellence, 3803-B Computer Dr. Suite 106, Raleigh, NC
Friday, May 30, 2014 Time: 10:00–noon
Let’s welcome back to Wonderland author and writing teacher Nancy Peacock who is excited to discuss with us her most recent novel, The Life and Times of Persimmon Wilson. An ex-slave named Persimmon Wilson awaits his hanging for the murder of the man who once owned him. As he waits, he pens his story. The journey of Persimmon Wilson takes the reader from the brutality of slavery on a Louisiana sugar plantation to a ranch on the Texas frontier to life among the Comanche Indians. All through his travels, Wilson seeks the one person he loves, a light-skinned house slave named Chloe. When he finds her, she is passing for white and is the wife of their former master. This is a rip-roaring, old-fashioned adventure romance. It is also a serious examination of assumptions about identity and truth.
