The Pat Conroy Literary Center and the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network proudly present executive director Jonathan Haupt in conversation with novelist Heather Bell Adams, author of The Good Luck Stone.
““The Good Luck Stone is a taut and lyrical literary thriller that I found difficult to put down. This novel immerses us expertly in the high society world of modern Savannah and the tropical heat of the Philippines during World War II, both anchored by an endearing character you’ll never forget, caught up in an intricate plot that will keep the pages turning long into the night. Heather Bell Adams is a truly gifted novelist.” --Silas House, author of Southernmost
