NEWBERRY — Books on Main in Newberry will host a book signing for Joanna Innes from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 6.

Innes, professor emeritus of English, recently published “Blocked,” a novel about art professor Lydia Drexel and the mystery she encounters during a mountain getaway to reclaim her lost muse.

Innes, who now lives in Charleston, recently completed the children’s book “Wood Sprite” and also has written a memoir about the effects of the Great Depression on her family, the results of post-WWII industrialization and the changes wrought by modern technology.

While at Newberry College from 1989-2002, Innes directed the Writing Center and taught English, Creative Writing, Writing and English Education courses.
