Book Signing with Carter Taylor Seaton

November 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Author Carter Taylor Seaton will be signing copies of her new book, ‘Guilt,’ on November 18 from 2-4 p.m. 

About ‘Guilt’:

Judge Alexander Betts has carried the burden of guilt most of his life. Now a bench trial before him forces him to finally deal with the reasons behind it. In southern Georgia in the 1960s, Alexander knew something about the murder his best friend’s brother was accused of, but he kept silent. Now, faced with an anonymous threatening letter, and a case with similar circumstantial evidence, he wants to set things right. Will he finally find the courage he lacked at sixteen?
