            PENDLETON --- Greenville novelist Matt Matthews will discuss his award-winning Southern coming-of-age book, Mercy Creek, Wednesday, March 6, at Tri-County Technical College.

            Mercy Creek tells the story of 16-year-old Isaac, who is trying to make the confusing transition from child to young man. He makes many revelations about himself and life as he begins to dig deeper into the mysteries of his small Southern town.

            Matthews studied journalism at Virginia Commonwealth University, then attended Union Seminary in Richmond, Virginia.  He serves as pastor at St. Giles Presbyterian Church in Greenville.
