Milligan hosts an evening with local fantasy author W.M. Driscoll
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Jan. 13, 2017) — Milligan College will host an evening with local poet and author W.M. (William) Driscoll on Tuesday, Jan. 31, at 7 p.m. in the college’s P.H. Welshimer Library. He will read from his fantasy series called “Godsfade.” The event is free and open to the public.
“This will be an enjoyable evening with treats, readings and conversation about William’s work,” said Dr. Charlotte Anderson, Milligan music instructor and acting chair of the Milligan Arts Council, which sponsored the event. “I read Driscoll’s first book with my book club, and we had a lively conversation with him at our meeting about the book’s themes and how his Christian faith fits into his fantasy writing. I knew then that I wanted him to come and have a similar chat with us at Milligan.”
Exploring themes of good and evil, Driscoll’s “Godsfade” fantasy series is about two teens from the land of Terra who, after their homes are destroyed and families murdered, are rescued by the powerful, ancient gods called Aeons. Together, they set out on an adventure and must avoid the evil warriors ravaging their forest homes.
