Snowden Wright Hosts Book Signing

Meridian, Miss. An author came back to Meridian to host a book signing at Harry Mayer's Clothiers Thursday.

Snowden Wright, who is originally from meridian but now lives in New York, came to sign copies of his book "Play Pretty Blues." The fiction novel is written about blues legend Robert Johnson and very little is known about Johnson's life.

"I had heard that one reason why no one knew much about his life was that maybe he had different families throughout the south and had different wives, so i decided to have six of his wives, that are fictional, speak in one voice. They speak as sort of a Greek chorus, and it's their search for the truth about his life," said Snowden Wright, the author of the book.

The books can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and at local independent book stores.
