Summerville Author Hosts Book Signing Events | Community news


Summerville author Don Best is hosting book signings this month to promote the first of two novels set in the Brazilian rainforest.

“The Gravedigger’s Dream” is inspired by the personal experience of the author living in the Amazon.

“The Brazilian rainforest is an exquisite and very dangerous garden,” Best said in a press release. “I took this setting, which I know and love, and populated it with some of the craziest characters you’ll ever meet.”

The story is told through the eyes of Brazilian Zé Licata, the gravedigger, who dreams of overthrowing the country’s ruthless tyrant and offering a future to his gifted son, Rafael.

Best’s history in Latin America includes activities as a Peace Corps volunteer in Paraguay, an expatriate journalist based in Rio de Janeiro and finally a missionary-writer living in Santarém, Pará, in the heart of the Amazon.

“The Gravedigger’s Dream” is the first in a two-part series called “Rivers Wild” published by Chicago-based Brimstone Fiction. The second novel, “The Third Promise”, is due out later this year.

Here are the signing events:

  • 10:30 a.m. to noon on July 24 at Main Street Reads in Summerville.
  • Noon to 2 p.m. July 31 at Turning Page Bookstore in Goose Creek.
