HAMMOND - Author Dayne Sherman will launch his just-published novel "Zion" on Thursday (Oct. 30) at the Hammond Regional Arts Center in downtown Hammond.
The free event will be held from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at the center, located at 217 East Thomas St. in downtown Hammond.
Sherman, coordinator of User Education at Southeastern Louisiana University's Sims Memorial Library, will read excerpts from "Zion," promising to be done in time for the New Orleans Saints televised football game against the Green Bay Packers later that evening.
Individuals attending the event, which will include refreshments and live music, will receive a free copy of the "Zion" ebook.
"Zion," a mystery set in the rural South, is Sherman's second novel. He is the author of the critically acclaimed work "Welcome to the Fallen Paradise." Both books are set in Sherman's fictional Louisiana locale Baxter Parish.
