An Evening With Author Amy Greene Join the Library Society of UT Knoxville and the Friends of the Knox County Public Library for an evening with author Amy Greene on Thursday, March 23, at 7 p.m. at the East Tennessee History Center. Greene will present the 2017 Wilma Dykeman Stokely Memorial Lecture. The event is free and open to the public. Bloodroot, Greene’s first novel, was a national bestseller. Her second novel, Long Man, is the story of people who were forced to relocate when the Tennessee Valley Authority decided to flood their town. Greene is currently working on her third novel. Copies of Greene’s books will be available for purchase, and the author will sign books after the lecture. Greene was born in Russellville, Tennessee. She currently resides in Hawkins County, Tennessee. The Wilma Dykeman Stokely Memorial Lecture honors the late Wilma Dykeman Stokely (1920–2006), writer, speaker, teacher, historian, environmentalist and long-time friend of the Knox County Public Library. Her papers are part of the University of Tennessee Knoxville Library’s Special Collections.
