To kick off the annual Alumni Weekend, former William Woods University faculty member, Dr. Sue Hallgarth, will hold a book signing and reading for her book, “On the Rocks: A Willa Cather and Edith Lewis Mystery.”

The event will take place from 2 to 3 p.m. April 25, at Well Read Books, 519 Court St. in downtown Fulton.

Hallgarth is a novelist and Willa Cather and Edith Lewis scholar. “On the Rocks” is the first book in her Willa Cather and Edith Lewis mystery series, and it was featured in the February 2013 issue of “O” magazine.

“A mystery provides its own forward motion,” she says. “It doesn’t have to be linear or chronological the way historical fiction does; it just has to be logical.”

At a ceremony April 26, Hallgarth will receive an Honorary Alumnus Award from William Woods.
