Texarkana Public Library welcomes Brannon Perkison back to East Texas to reveal his debut novel THE DO NOTHING.
After a family dispute turns violent, seventeen-year-old John Sharpe flees, convinced he just murdered his own father. Wounded in his ill-fated police getaway, John disappears into the East Texas backwoods, hoping to evade the law and his own guilt. A finalist in the Unified Literary Contest and quarter-finalist for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, Brannon Perkison's debut novel is an exciting, provocative road trip with reconciliation—or murder—at journey's end.
Brannon Perkison was born in Hawaii in 1969, the Navy-brat son of an intelligence officer. He was brought up in the piney woods of East Texas and has also lived in Germany and Ohio before moving to Dallas, Texas in 1998. For twenty years he worked in the software and telecommunications industries, teaching tennis on the side and also helping his wife build her architecture business.
Teens and adults will find much of interest in The Do Nothing.
