Lipscomb University will host a book reading and signing of Beside Still Waters for Dickson County author, Dr. Sue Berry, at 4 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 9, in the Upper Level Mezzanine of the Beaman Library on Lipscomb’s campus, 3901 Granny White Pike. The event sponsored by Lipscomb’s Department of English and Sigma Tau Delta, the university’s chapter of the national English honor society. It is free and open to the public.
Berry was the chair of the Lipscomb English department for 35 years before she retired 10 years ago. She now lives with her two sisters, also retired teachers, on the family farm. She is an active member of Walnut Street Church of Christ.
Berry’s collection of fictional short stories, Beside Still Waters, tells the tales of everyday people such as families, church-goers and neighbors.
According to a review in the Tennessean by Rick Tamble, “the crown jewel of these 17 dazzling stories is “The Love of Reelfoot and Lifting Waters.” The story is a retelling based on local legends, of the tale of two native-American lovers who “floated into an abyss that opened beneath them” during the earthquake that formed Reelfoot Lake.
Berry’s first book of collected stories, Who is My Neighbor?, was published by the Tennessee Press in 2001.
Beside Still Waters will be available for purchase at the signing.
