Of Stars and Hurricanes: Two Columbia Novelists Return

Former Columbia residents Carrie Brown and John Gregory Brown will read from their work at a celebration of literature’s history in this planned city.

Carrie Brown’s most recent novel is The Stargazer’s Sister, historical fiction about a nineteenth-century astronomer’s sister.

John Gregory Brown’s newest novel, A Thousand Miles from Nowhere, follows the path of a Hurricane Katrina survivor seeking redemption.

At “Of Stars and Hurricanes," HoCoPoLitSo will also honor two of Columbia’s own forces of nature, Padraic and Ellen Kennedy, for their work creating a literary life in Howard County.

A reception will follow. Tickets are $20 and available at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2725249.
