Artworks is pleased to host author Cindy L. Johnson as she launches her new fiction work, “Hiding”. A reception and book signing will be held in the Gallery at Artworks Around Town on Saturday July 29, 2023 at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. A special guest will be WVU’s Mountaineer.
Johnson’s first volume is part of a trilogy. She is currently working on the second one, titled “Hunting”. “Healing” will be the last in the series. The first book deals with New York City lawyer Camilla S. Kennedy’s involvement with a man whose power and control eventually force her to escape to her home in West Virginia. As the back cover of the book states, “She was going home to the hollow. The place she left over twenty years ago. Now was the time for Hiding”.
“It’s not based on anybody I know. It wasn’t a story that I set out to write. It just came tumbling out”, Johnson stated in an interview recently. Her character’s home is Pocahontas County in West Virginia. The trilogy promises to be a good read for all and especially those who love the state, Almost Heaven, West Virginia.
The reception and book signing will take place in the Gallery of Artworks Around Town, located in Wheeling’s Historic Centre Market. All are welcome to meet the author, Cindy L. Johnson, purchase her book and have it signed, enjoy some cake and meet WVU’s Mountaineer.
