Interactive author event at the library
Scott Nicholson's free presentation at the Watauga County Library will be everything you don't want it to be and less.
The one-hour, interactive event will not feature Nicholson reading from his books until your eyes glaze over. It will not feature Nicholson talking about how great of a writer he is, because he's not that good. You will not see him drawing from his comic books because he's a lousy artist.
What you will get is whatever you want. Nicholson will take questions and talk about your favorite subjects, even if he knows absolutely nothing about them. That's never stopped him before. He steals local legends to fill up his novels, and he thinks e-books are about to change the world, and he often gives writers useless advice, so all of that is fair game. He'll even talk organic gardening if you like. The only thing he won't talk about is Lady Gaga.
Nicholson has written 10 novels, 60 short stories, six screenplays, four comic book series, and enough bad poetry to paper every outhouse in Appalachia. You might know him from his journalism work with Mountain Times Publications. When he's not writing, he's worrying about not writing. Otherwise, he is quite normal.
The free event is Tuesday, July 13, at 7 p.m. at the library on Queen Street in Boone. For information on Nicholson, visit http://www.hauntedcomputer.com or call the library at (828) 264-8784.
