Blacksburg Book Signing Event


Event is here!

See you there!

Blacksburg Books Event

at Blacksburg Books

Location: Blacksburg, VA

Date: Thursday, May 11, 2023

Time: 7PM - 8PM

Virginia author and attorney William E. Johnson will be here to discuss his novel, A Silent Tide, winner of the 2014 National Indie Excellence Award for Best Legal Thriller.

Beginning with the brutal 1927 ambush of Chesapeake Bay rum runners at a fog-shrouded cove on Maryland's eastern shore and culminating with a final showdown eighty years later when truth meets justice at Harpers Creek Marina, A Silent Tide brings to life the 2007 story of a bayside community racially rocked by the murder of favorite son and all-state athlete Jimmy Jarvis, and the trial of Jamal Billups, the African American man charged with the crime.

William will also discuss the writing and storytelling process, so all aspiring authors are encouraged to attend!
