Charles Fiore, author of Green Gospel was recently in the store discussing his debut novel.
Fleeing the FBI, eco-terrorist Edie Aberdeen escapes to the small, rural town of Arcadia, Florida. She hopes to reinvent herself and forget her criminal past. But when she falls in with a mega-church whose pastor preaches a fiery brand of environmental fundamentalism, she must choose between abdication and one final, radical act to save the church from financial ruin.
Several unforgettable characters narrate this vivid debut novel that examines the roots of fundamentalism, the powerful sway of community, and cuts to the heart of the question of whether or not people change.
Here is a brief video taken while he was here describing why he felt compelled to write this book.
Alex Shakar, author of The Savage Girl wrote: ” A powerfully unfolding story of the changing landscapes of our time – physical, cultural, and personal. With Green Gospel, L. C. Fiore establishes himself as a writer of extraordinary sensitivity and insight.”
Here is another brief clip of Charles reading from his book.
Autographed copies of this book are still available at Barnhills.
