Mark Barr will be at The Book Tavern on Tuesday, October 29th as part of the book tour for his debut novel, Watershed.
"Set in 1937 in rural Tennessee, with the construction of a monumental dam serving as background, Watershed delivers a gripping story of characters whose ambitions and yearnings threaten to overflow the banks of their time and place."
Watershed has already received positive reviews from Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and fellow authors including Julia Franks and Smith Henderson.
Mark Barr has been awarded fellowships from Blue Mountain Center, I-Park Artists' Enclave, Jentel Arts, Kimmel Harding Nelson Center, Millay Colony, and Yaddo. He holds an M.F.A from Texas State University. He lives with his wife and sons in Arkansas, where he develops software and bakes bread.
