North Carolina vs. Butler

Representing North Carolina, See Me by Nicholas Sparks offers up more suspense than his past novels. Colin Hancock has been given a second chance at life, and he is determined to avoid anything from his destructive past that could jeopardize his plans, and when he meets Maria Sanchez one night in North Carolina, he finds the missing piece to his life. But Maria has her own demons, and they are about to interfere.

For Butler, we are taking a tour of small town Indiana in Laird Hunt's The Evening Road. It's the summer of 1920, and Ottie Lee Henshaw and

Calla Destry are about to leave their lives behind. Hunt's latest explores the tensions and injustices of Jim Crow-era Indiana, as two women from very different lives, but equally strong and resilient, attempt to flee their pasts in an America torn by hatred and fear.
