‘Inheritance’ book signing is Saturday
Victoria Wilcox, author of the award-winning novel “Inheritance,” will sign copies of her book at Omega Book Center in Peachtree City June 15 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. “Inheritance” is the first book in the historical fiction trilogy, “Southern Son: The Saga of Doc Holliday,” and was named one of the “best new books of the season” by the Great Southeast Book Festival.
Wilcox, who lives in Peachtree City, was founding director of Fayetteville’s Holliday-Dorsey-Fife House Museum, where she discovered the story that led to “Southern Son: The Saga of Doc Holliday.”
Although the name Doc Holliday conjures images of the Wild West and the shootout at the OK Corral, before he was a Western legend he was a Southern son, born in Griffin, Georgia in the last days of the Old South with family links to Fayette County and the author of “Gone With the Wind.”
The saga begins with “Inheritance,” set during the turbulent times of Civil War and Reconstruction, as young John Henry Holliday faces first love and family tragedy, honor and betrayal, and a violent encounter that changes his life forever.
Wilcox, a member of the Western Writers of America, spent 18 years researching and writing the Southern Son trilogy, becoming a nationally known expert on the life of Doc Holliday. Her book tour for “Inheritance” began with an appearance in Tombstone, Arizona, and will take her across the country to all the places Holliday knew in his adventurous life.
Refreshments will be served. Those who can’t attend the event but would like a signed copy of the book reserved for them can contact Omega at 770-487-3977.
