Joshilyn Jackson & Sara Gruen Event

Long time writing friends Joshilyn Jackson and Sara Gruen will discuss their recent books and how their writing group has shaped their work and careers. Joshilyn Jackson’s new novel, The Opposite of Everyone, is the tale of Atlanta lawyer Paula Vauss, née Kali Jai, born to an eccentric storyteller mother who went to prison and has now disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Gruen praises The Opposite of Everyone as “inevitable, surprising, and beautifully layered.” Jackson is also the New York Times-bestselling author of seven novels, including gods in Alabama and Someone Else's Love Story. Sara Gruen, best known for her novel Water for Elephants, is the author most recently of At the Water’s Edge, now out in paperback. The story of a young woman who follows her husband to Scotland during WWII and finds herself questioning her life choices, it is “a page-turner of a novel that rollicks along with crisp historical detail,” according to the Forth Worth Star-Telegram.
