Friends of the Kingsport Public Library hosts Dr. Bass, Body Farm founder
Kingsport, TN (18 march 2012) – Friends of the Kingsport Public Library announce the return to Kingsport of University of Tennessee's world- renowned forensic anthropologist Dr. William M. (Bill) Bass, Monday, April 9th, at the Dobyns-Bennett Nancy Pridemore Little Theatre. The Theatre doors will open at 6pm for book purchases, book signings, and photos with Dr. Bass. Dr. Bass will speak at 7pm. Tickets ($12; $5 with a valid student id) can be purchased at the Kingsport Public Library Circulation Desk or at the door. Profits from Dr. Bass' program will go toward the fund development for the renovation of the Kingsport Public Library.
Dr. Bass arrived at The University of Tennessee Knoxville in 1971. He oversaw the development of the forensic anthropology program at UTK, which culminated in the creation of the Forensic Anthropology Center within the Department of Anthropology.
Dr. Bass provides the technical expertise with veteran journalist and writer Jon Jefferson creating the successful writing duo of Jefferson Bass, creator of the Body Farm novels. The first six Body Farm novels took readers deep into the East Tennessee hills and the Florida panhandle, where fascinating forensic science mixed with extraordinary characters, including the Farm's charismatic founder, Dr. Bill Brockton. Now, in the seventh installment (The Inquisitor's Key, due May 8, 2012) of the New York Times bestselling series that Kathy Reichs calls "the real deal," Brockton travels to one of the most beautiful and historic cities in France... and tackles the case of the millennium.
