Mary Hadley and H. Charles Martin will present ‘Writing Detective Fiction Where We Live: Confessions of a Statesboro Couple” Tuesday, Sept. 25, from 7-9 p.m. at Jenkins County Memorial Library, 223 Daniel Street in Millen. Their presentation continues the ‘Southeast Georgia on our Minds” series, an eight-part series of community programs on the people, history, culture, and literature of southeast Georgia.
Hadley is an associate professor of writing in the Department of Writing and Linguistics at Georgia Southern University. She and her husband, writer and art restorer H. Charles Martin, write detective fiction under the nom de plume ‘Mary Charles.” Some of their novels include ‘Nightmare in Savannah,” ‘The Reluctant Corpse,” and ‘Savannah Scores.”
Each ‘Southeast Georgia on Our Minds” session includes a presentation by a Georgia Southern Humanities faculty member followed by audience interaction and discussion.
The sessions begin at 7 p.m., but refreshments are available beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Sept. 25 session focuses on themes in the Humanities through contemporary regional writing and writers.
The ‘Southeast Georgia on Our Minds” series is sponsored by the Georgia Humanities Council and facilitated by Georgia Southern University in partnership with Screven-Jenkins Regional Library System. It is free of charge and open to the general public, with refreshments provided by the Friends of the libraries involved.
