The Unknown by Martiece Arrington

A random traffic accident in the summer of 2009 in Bloomington, Illinois forever changed the lives of Martiece Arrington and his family. Martiece’s then 10-year old brother, Travell, was killed while riding his bicycle. Martiece is a May 2021 graduate of SIU Carbondale. His new novel, “The Unknown,” honors the life of his brother and chronicles their journey.

WSIU’s Jeff Williams recently talked with Martiece about his book for this edition of In The Author’s Voice. You can find more information about “The Unknown” on Martiece Arrington’s website https://purchasingtheunknown.com.
