Emory Rhea Raxter, author of the recently released novel “By the Light of the Foxfire,” will hold a book signing from 3 to 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26, at Blount Discount Books.
This is Raxter’s first published novel and the first book signing for “By the Light of the Foxfire”.
Raxter, an Ashville, N.C., native, was raised in Greeneville, Tenn., earned a BS degree from Jacksonville University in Florida and returned home to work in her family’s business. After putting her creative nature on the back burner for nearly three decades, Raxter has published her first novel. According to critics, Raxter’s love of Western North Carolina’s mountains, her unique understanding of the flavors that make up the area in which she was born and raised have helped generate an unforgettable pager turner.
