Local writer Eugene Platt has published a coming-of-age novel called “Saint Andrew’s Parish: A Novel of Redemption.” The book, produced by Two Seagulls Press, is available from Amazon in paperback ($20) and ebook ($1) formats.

“Saint Andrew’s Parish” tells the story of two boys, Bubba and Andy, who grow up in Charleston and endure life’s struggles in the wider world, sharing an unbreakable bond. Poems by Platt are woven through the text.

Platt, who has published several poetry collections, is a Charleston native, Army veteran, environmentalist and political activist.
