Author Brad Parks to speak at RCC's 50th anniversary open houseGLOUCESTER—Best-selling novelist Brad Parks has written several of his best-selling crime novels at the Hardee’s restaurant in Saluda, less than four miles from Rappahannock Community College’s Glenns Campus, 12745 College Drive, Glenns.

On January 11, 2020, Parks will speak at RCC’s 50th anniversary celebration on “The Education of a Writer.” After speaking at 3 p.m. in the RCC Lecture Hall, he will meet with fans and sign books from 3:45- 5 p.m. in the RCC library.

Copies of his latest novels The Last Act, Closer Than You Know and Say Nothing will be available for purchase and signing. Fans may bring their own copies to be signed, said director of communications Jeff Macharyas.

An international bestselling author, Parks is the only writer to have won the Shamus, Nero and Lefty Awards, three of American crime fiction’s most prestigious prizes. His novels have been translated into 15 languages and have won critical acclaim across the globe, including stars from every major pre-publication review outlet.

A graduate of Dartmouth College, Parks is a former journalist with The Washington Post and The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger.

A full-time novelist, he divides his time between the shores of the Rappahannock River and Williamsburg. In both places, his favorite writing haunt is a Hardee’s restaurant.
