Author Signing with Kristie Robin Johnson

October 24 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Come hear author Kristie Robin Johnson read from her new essay collection, High Cotton, Saturday, October 24th at 2:30 with a signing to follow!

Kristie Robin Johnson has lived nearly her whole life in small town Georgia, as did five generations of African American women before her beginning with a slave, her oldest known ancestor. In High Cotton, Johnson explores the social and economic consequences of her lineage, drawing on her experience as a post–civil rights era, post–women’s liberation, pre-millennial black woman to illuminate the lived reality of a daughter of the Deep South, in the process conjuring universal truths every reader will recognize.

We’ll be set up outside on the front patio. Please observe the rules of social distancing and maintain a six foot distance from people not in your party. We ask you to be respectful of the author and keep conversations brief if others are waiting to get their books signed. Also, while in the store, we do require you wear a mask, so please come prepared as you’ll need to enter the store for checkout.
