Andrew Rice to sign Ghosts of Ursino

When: Wed., July 29, 6:30 p.m. 2020

Rice's discovery of the remarkable true story of his great-great-grandparents’ interracial marriage on Davis Island, Mississippi in 1872 sent him in search for more details and revelations about his uniquely American family. The limits to his genealogical research became the jumping-off point for this work of contemporary fiction. Ghosts of Ursino provides the reader an interior view of a scattered American family, and their struggle for identity and satisfaction in a society burdened with obsessions over race, resentment, and wealth.
