The book launch for Nancy Hartney’s debut short story collection, Washed in the Water, drew at least one hundred of Nancy’s admirers to the Fayetteville Public Library on Sunday, August 18, 2013.

Guests noshed on refreshments chosen to reflect Southern tastes–sweet tea, strawberries, old-timey pop, and ersatz Moonpies–while Nancy signed copies of her book. Then, in her easy-listening Georgia accent, she entertained the audience with carefully selected excerpts calculated to send readers home eager to finish the stories in their entirety.

Anyone unfortunate enough to have missed the event can buy a copy of Washed in the Water at Nightbird Books on Dickson Street in Fayetteville, on Amazon, or from Pen-L Publishing.
