Cafe au Libris - Mark Warren

Georgia Author of the Year

Join us as we hear from Mark Warren as he speaks about "A Writer’s Journey to Georgia Author of the Year.” Mark was a 2022 finalist for the award for his novel, Song of the Horseman.
A Georgia native and University of Georgia graduate, he teaches nature classes and survival skills of the Cherokees at Medicine Bow, his nationally renowned wilderness school in the Southern Appalachians. The National Wildlife Federation named him Georgia’s Conservation Educator of the Year in 1980. Mark has written extensively about nature for local and national magazines. He lectures on Native American history and survival skills, and Western Frontier History, presenting at museums and cultural centers around the country. 
For his award-winning book Song of the Horseman, Judge Zoe Fishman noted: “To seamlessly weave descriptive prose and interior thought while propelling a story forward is no small task, but do so while simultaneously evoking empathy for and frustration towards the protagonist is impressive. But to pull that off while meshing two generations’ worth of grief, misunderstanding and racism against a masterfully rendered backdrop of nature in all of its infinite glory while touching on the universal bond between man and animal is downright Herculean. Warren’s prose is magnificently rendered; the kind of writing that makes the reader put down their book for a moment and marvel. This is a story about retracing steps, both literal and figurative to find out where we began.”
Books will be available for purchase and signing.
