Special thanks to Julia Duin, who read from her new book, "In the House of the Serpent Handler," Saturday at Chaparral. A Seattle-based journalist, Duin spent months in six Appalachian states, interviewing Pentecostal preachers who "take up" venomous snakes as a test of their religious faith. Copies of the book are still available at the store.
