Carolyn Curry at Peachtree City Library Aug. 9


Award-winning author Carolyn Curry will be at Peachtree City Library on Tuesday, August 9, at 1 p.m., to talk about her newest book, Sudden Death (Mercer University Press, 2022).

Sudden Death is a murder mystery set in the world of football and written by a woman who has lived her entire life as the wife of a player and coach (Bill Curry). But Sudden Death is more than a whodunit. In the guise of a mystery, there is an insightful look at the troubling aspects of gambling in sports, addiction, spouse abuse, and death threats to coaches and their wives. But a far more meaningful message is the survival and triumph of the human spirit. Finally, Sudden Death is a love story between a man and woman who are committed to one another and their desire to make the world a better place.

Carolyn Curry is an award-winning author, historian, and non-profit founder and director of Women Alone Together®.
