Southern Author to Appear
at Ogeechee Tech

Jack C. Riggs is the author of two prize-winning novels, "When the Finch Rises" and "The Fireman's Wife," and holds the position of a writer-in-residence at Georgia Perimeter College near Decatur. He is also associate professor of English at the college. His two books, both set in the South of the 1960s and '70s, are centered on character development and relationships, one on the ties between two young boys, and the other on the strained bonds of marriage.

Riggs will appear at Ogeechee Technical College on March 18 at 9:30am in the auditorium of the Joseph E. Kennedy Building with the next installment of Ogeechee Tech’s Southern Authors in Residence.  Following a discussion of his latest book, and a question and answer period, Riggs will be available in the Kennedy lobby to autograph copies of his books.

Dr. Lynn Futch, Library Services Coordinator for Ogeechee Technical College, is responsible for putting the Southern Authors series together.  “Everyone is invited to attend this presentation.  While we are excited to have our employees and students enjoy Mr. Riggs’ visit, we would like to also invite the public to this event which is free of charge,” Futch stated.

For information on the event, please call Dr. Lynn Futch at (912) 871-1606.
