Perry Page Turners welcomes Kimberly Brock to our first annual book festival, Turning a New Page, January 27, 2024 at First Baptist Church, Perry. Kimberly is the bestselling author of The Lost Book of Eleanor Dare and her award-winning debut, The River Witch.
The Lost Book of Eleanor Dare spent three weeks on The Southern Independent Booksellers Bestseller List and was shortlisted for the Townsend Prize for Fiction.
Her debut was an Amazon bestseller featured by both national and international book clubs and included in multiple reading lists. Praised by RT Reviews and Huffington Post as a “solemn journey of redemption, enlightenment and love,” and evocative of “the stories of Flannery O’Connor and Carson McCullers,” Kimberly’s debut novel was honored with the Georgia Author of the Year Award in 2013, by the Georgia Writer’s Association.
A former actor and special needs educator, Kimberly received her bachelor’s degree from the University of West Georgia in 1996. In 2014, Kimberly founded Tinderbox Writer’s Workshop, a transformative creative experience for women in the arts. Kimberly has served as a guest lecturer for many regional and national groups, including The Women’s Fiction Writer’s annual conference and The Pat Conroy Literary Center. A native of North Georgia, she now lives near Atlanta, Georgia.
