Hickory Stick Bookshop in Washington Depot will present a book signing with Rose Styron Jan. 12 from 3 to 4:30 p.m.

As Mrs. Styron attempted to organize the Connecticut home she shared with her husband William, she came across myriad of letters and postcards in her husband's desk.

Hesitant at first to go through them for fear of invading her late husband's privacy, she read them and found the letters took her on a journey through their life together, recreating many of the good times and experiences they had shared.

The letters, compiled in "Selected Letters of William Styron," became an "unofficial" biography of a literary master documenting major historical and cultural events as well as his receipt of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.
