Chetola Resort in Blowing Rock will host a special book signing by Jan Karon, a New York Times best-selling author, in September.
Karon will sign her newest book in her Mitford Series, titled "Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good," at 2 p.m. Sept. 14 at the lakeside tent on the Chetola lawn.
The event is sponsored by Putnam & Penquin Publishing, the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce and Chetola.
Karon is the No. 1 New York Times best-selling author of 23 books, including the "Mitford" novels, the "Father Tim" novels, a popular cookbook, the "Mitford Beside Companion" and several books for young readers.

In the early 1990s, Karon retired from a career in advertising and moved to Blowing Rock, where she penned the Mitford series, inspired by her new mountain home.
The book signing is free and will include light refreshments; however, reservations are required due to limited space. Call Chetola Resort concierge Zak Linkins at (828) 295-5509 to make reservations.
Each reservation ticket must be designated with a separate name for check-in purposes.
Books will be available for purchase.
