On Saturday, June 15th from noon to 3:00 pm, Knoxville Soap, Candle & Gifts at 4889 Broadway will host a book signing by Krista Tibbs,Knoxville resident and acclaimed author of the novels, The Neurology of Angels and Uncertainty Principles.  “I am pleased to be associated with a store that showcases so many talented local artists,” says TIbbs.  

What would you do if you could scientifically predict when tragedy would strike your town? This is the question at the heart of Uncertainty Principles, released in April 2013. The answer isn’t as straightforward as it might seem, and every potential action has dire consequences. Yet at the core of this suspense-filled story are five diverse people exploring the relationships among what we look for, what we perceive, and the power of our expectations. As one of them realizes, “Don’t you see? We never know what’s going to happen next, but uncertainty can be either the root of fear or the cornerstone of hope. It all depends on the observer.”

The Neurology of Angels , the author’s first novel, is a story about the hearts inside the business and politics of drug development. The Midwest Book Review called it “superbly written from first page to last”, and book bloggers from the U.S. to Australia have described it as “powerful, informative, heart-tugging”, “a tender tale of persons who are frail and vulnerable – like most of humanity – yet who aspire to do what is right”, and “a very important book, written at a very important time.”   

Krista Tibbs studied neuroscience at MIT and has spent most of her non-writing career conducting clinical research for rare diseases. More information about the author and her work is available at www.kristatibbs.com and www.storyinside.org.
