People heard about the 1920s economic downfall from a Georgia author Thursday.
William Rawlings, Jr., mystery writer from Sandersville, spoke to nearly a dozen at the visit sponsored by Friends of the Thomson-McDuffie County Library.
A semi-retired physician, he is the author of six novels and has written for many newspapers and magazines.
His latest offering, “A Killing on Ring Jaw Bluff”, recounts the rise and fall of Georgia’s rural population as told through the story of Charles Graves Rawlings. His life followed the fortunes of cotton-based agriculture and Georgia’s small towns after the Civil War.
