Darkansas: A Novel with debut author JARRET MIDDLETON

Trident Booksellers is pleased to host author JARRET MIDDLETON for a reading of his debut novel, Darkansas.

Jordan is a country musician living in the shadow of his father, bluegrass legend Walker Bayne. A man who has made a lifetime of poor decisions, Jordan bounces between dive bars, accruing women and drinking himself to the brink of disaster.

When he returns home to the Ozarks for his twin brother’s wedding, Jordan uncovers a dark vein in the Bayne family history: going back to the end of the Civil War, every generation of Bayne men have been twins―and one twin has always murdered their father.

This event is free and open to the public.
