Christopher Swann - Shadow of the Lions Even the privileged world of an elite boarding school knows darkness. Matthias, a once-promising writer who's frittered away his talent and family, rejoins his old school as a teacher. He's not just trying to find his place in the world again; he's also out to find what happened to his boyhood roommate, who walked away from the school years ago - and vanished. Christopher Swann shares his powerful debut noir novel, Shadow of the Lions, with us on Monday, August 7, at 7 pm. “Both a poignant coming-of-age tale and a suspenseful mystery. Set in the persistently alluring environs of an elite prep school, where the idealistic image of striving achievement is always in conflict with the dark realities that trouble even the most privileged of lives, Shadow of the Lions illuminates the complexities of friendship, love, loyalty, and duty with remarkable wisdom and compassion.” —Ed Tarkington, author of Only Love Can Break Your Heart. Event date: Monday, August 7, 2017 - 7:00pm Event address: North Hills 4209-100 Lassiter Mill Road Raleigh, NC 27609
