Learn How to Steal Big

Averett's Authors on Campus Series is pleased to host author, antiques expert and appraiser Emyl Jenkins on Feb. 1 at 7:30 p.m. in Blount Chapel. No stranger to Danville having grown up here, Jenkins will discuss her newest novel, "The Big Steal." The event is free and open to the public.

"The Big Steal" continues the story of heroine Sterling Glass, who readers first met in Jenkins' first novel, "Stealing with Style." In this newest book, Sterling is hired to assess the value of broken and missing antiques at an old family estate. During her work, she discovers things are not as they seem and she works to unravel the mystery.

Jenkins started out writing about antiques. Her first book was "Why You're Richer Than You Think" and was later reissued as "Emyl Jenkins' Appraisal Book," followed by "Southern Christmas" and "Southern Hospitality."

Averett's Authors on Campus Series is a component of the University's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), Reading Critically for Success.
