ASHEBORO -- New York Times bestselling author Charlie Lovett will spill secrets of the Holy Grail during a Friends of the Randolph County Public Library dessert reception at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, at The Table Farmhouse Bakery in Asheboro.
Seating for the event is limited; tickets are $6 and must be purchased in advance at the Asheboro Public Library, 201 Worth Street.
In his 2017 novel The Lost Book of the Grail, now being released in paperback, Lovett follows British bibliophile Arthur Prescott and American researcher Bethany Davis as they uncover tantalizing clues to the location — and nature — of the Grail in a small cathedral town in the English countryside.
Lovett is also author of the novels The Bookman’s Tale, about an investigation spurred by a photo discovered in a book found in a used and rare bookshop, and First Impressions, a mystery involving writer Jane Austen.
He has penned five books on Lewis Carroll, and has lectured internationally on the author. For the 150th anniversary in 2015 of the publication of Alice in Wonderland, he wrote the introduction to a new Penguin Books edition of the work and curated a major exhibition of Carroll artifacts and memorabilia — many of them from his own collection — at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.
Lovett is also author of plays for children and a novel for teens. A Winston-Salem native, he is a graduate of Davidson College and the Vermont College of Fine Arts.
He and his family divide their time between Winston-Salem and the village of Kingham in Oxfordshire, England.
