ROCKINGHAM — A local author will be autographing copies of his debut novel at a downtown restaurant this week.


Sam McGee’s new book, “Cartledge Creek,” is a work of historical fiction that follows Jim Dockery — son of secession opponent and Richmond County plantation owner Gen. Alfred Dockery — through Civil War battles and his journey back home.

McGee, a graduate of Yale Law School, co-authored “Sidelines and Bloodlines: A Father, His Sons and Our Life in College Football,” with his father, Jerry McGee, and brother, ESPN’s Ryan McGee.

The book, released in 2020, was about the patriarch’s 36 years on the sidelines as a college football official.

The signing for “Cartledge Creek” will be from 4-6 p.m. Thursday at Pattan’s Downtown Grille in Rockingham.
