On Thursday, January 10th at 7 PM, avid woodsman and practicing attorney, Andre Bergeron, will participate in a reading and book signing for his new book, The
Devil's Ridge. Bergeron uses the mythic quality of the North American great ape, Sasquatch, or Bigfoot, to craft a gripping page-turner that taps into our primal fears and basic instincts. Reminiscent of stories told around the campfire, The Devil's Ridge will make you wonder what is lurking in the shadows, just beyond the fire's light.
Andre Bergeron earned his Master's degree in English and his Juris Doctorate from the University of Louisville. He practices law in Louisville. The Devil's Ridge is his first novel.
