Event Description

Join us for a complimentary slice of pie and a good read!

Book description:  (recommended for Adult readers) Pie Town, New Mexico, was once legendary for its extraordinary pies. But it's been a while since these delectable desserts graced the counter at the local diner. The townspeople—a hearty mix of Anglos, Hispanics, and Native Americans—like to think of themselves as family, especially when it comes to caring for Alex, a disabled little boy being raised by his grandparents. But, unforeseen by all, Pie Town's fortunes are about to take a major turn—due to the arrival of a new priest, Father George Morris, who seems woefully unprepared for his first assignment, and the young hitchhiker Trina, who some townsfolk just know is trouble. . . .

“Hinton has an excellent sense of Southwestern rhythms and cadence.” (Publishers Weekly on Pie Town )

“[A] feel-good story—one that will be enjoyed by readers of Jan Karon and Nicholas Sparks.” (Booklist on Pie Town )

“Reading Hinton’s light, quickly moving prose feels like sitting down to catch up with an old friend over coffee.” (New Mexico Magazine on Pie Town )

Bio: Lynne is a regular columnist with The Charlotte Observer and the author of several books, including a nonfiction piece, MEDITATIONS FOR WALKING, and the Hope Springs Trilogy with FRIENDSHIP CAKE. She has a mystery series with St. Martin’s, written under the name, Jackie Lynn which includes DOWN BY THE RIVERSIDE, JACOB'S LADDER, and SWING LOW, SWEET CHARIOT. CHRISTMAS CAKE AND WEDDING CAKE are her latest endeavors. Lynne and her husband presently live in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
