Jennifer Webb – “Mom’s Soul Café”

Stephen Davis – “All the Fighting They Want: The Atlanta Campaign from Peach Tree Creek to the Surrender, July 18-September 2, 1864”
In All the Fighting They Want, Georgia native Steve Davis, the world’s foremost authority on the Atlanta campaign, tells the tale of the last great struggle for the city. His Southern sensibility and his knowledge of the battle, accumulated over a lifetime of living on the ground, make this an indispensible addition to the acclaimed Emerging Civil War Series.
Tuesday, September 5, 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Kathy Wilson Florence – “Jaybird’s Song”
From 1999 to 2014, Florence’s weekly column “Over the Picket Fence” appeared in the Dunwoody Crier. Now, in 2017, she is debuting her first novel set in the turbulent South as Jim Crow laws come to an end. Josie Flint’s idyllic childhood in 1960s Atlanta is defined by her role as the oldest of the three Flint sisters and crowned with the presence of her grandmother, Annie Jo –
the maypole that centers the Flint family. As Josie’s school desegregates and the country meanders through new ideas brought about by the Civil Rights movement, a personal tragedy breaches Josie’s world and shatters that perfect childhood.
