Reading: William D. Darling, Anahuac

Join us for a spectacular night of literature. William D. Darling will be reading from his newest book, "Anahuac". 

Anahuac is a novel set in the small Texas town on Trinity Bay in 1972, involving an Arkansas radio preacher accused of murder and the idealistic lawyer representing him. Fans of courtroom thriller authors (especially Greg Iles) and fans of historical novels on Texas will find plenty to like about Anahuac, as well as Darling's first novel, Morgan's Point. 

"Austin writer William D. Darling’s second novel, Anahuac, is an entertaining, engrossing legal thriller that offers both darkly humorous and good-natured thrusts at life, love, and law . . . first-rate reading, especially for readers who enjoy legal thrillers, lawyer procedurals, suspense, Texas settings, and characters who live large." - Lone Star Literary Life

"Darling draws vivid portraits of his setting while also bringing in historical currents like women’s liberation, the growth of container shipping, and the rise of the prosperity gospel, adding interest to what’s otherwise a fairly simple courtroom drama." - Kirkus Reviews
