Author H. Michael Harvey's Visit To Mississippi: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Cyrus Webb of Conversations Book Club would like to thank those who made the visit of H. Michael Harvey, author of PAPER PUZZLE, a success in Mississippi on Saturday, February 20, 2010. The weather could not have been better, and the foundation has been laid for the message of the book and the mission of the author to be realized.

The day began at the historic Medgar Evers Branch Library in Jackson, Mississippi. There Michael and his wife met with members of the Mississippi Link newspaper as well as patrons.

From there is was on to the Pearl Public Library in Pearl, MS where the author met members of the staff and patrons who were excited about the visit.

Led by President Cyrus Webb, Harvey's visit is part of Conversations Book Club's promotion of reading and conversation among book lovers of all ages and backgrounds.

Paper Puzzle introduces dual protagonists, one white, Clay Moore managing editor of the town's daily newspaper and Jimmy Royal editor of the local black weekly tabloid. Both men as cub reporters covered a gangland styled murder and were pulled off the story by their publishers before anyone was brought to justice.

As time passes the two men kept thoughts of it in the back of region of their minds. Suddenly, Clay Moores' life is interrupted when he discovers news clippings from the gangland styled murder in his bed each morning. When Clay's security and career is threatened by a powerful federal judge he is forced to turn to the only other person who can help him solve the paper puzzle laying in his bed. He turns to Jimmy Royal and together the two reporters in the spirit of Woodard and Bernstein uncovers decades of injustice hidden neatly under the guise of the social mores of the times.

H. Michael Harvey is the third author to visit Mississippi this year as part of Conversations' "Read Well, Eat Well, Live Well" campaign designed to feed the needs of the entire individual. It is Webb's hope that such authors and their books will become discussion pieces long after the authors have come and gone.
