Here's an early Saturday event to sober up your Friday night hangover.
The welcomes this month Joseph Scott Morgan, an Atlanta writer and former senior investigator for the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office. He's got a new book called Blood Beneath My Feet: The Journey of a Southern Death Investigator.
Sounds like a rockin' read. Here's the synopsis from the book shop:
Have you ever been locked in a cooler with piles of decomposing humans for so long that you had to shave all the hair off your body in order to get rid of the smell? Joseph Scott Morgan did. Have you ever lit a Marlboro from the ignited gas of a bloated dead man's belly? Joseph Scott Morgan has. Have you ever wept over a dead dog while not giving a s--t about the dead owner lying next to him? Morgan did. Were you named after a murder victim? Joseph Scott Morgan was.
This isn't Hollywood fantasy-it's the true story of a boy born into the deprivations of a white trash trailer park who as an adult gets further involved in the desperate backdoor sagas of the "new South. No hot blondes here. Just maggots, grief, and the truth about forensics and death investigation.
Morgan will be at the store at 1pm Saturday, Aug. 18. Have fun.
