We are pleased to welcome nationally syndicated, and award-winning columnist Rheta Grimsley Johnson to speak about her newest book, Enchanted Evening Barbie and the Second Coming: A Memoir.
The publisher describes Johnson's new book as a "frank, exhilarating, wise, poignant, and brave memoir. Her territory ranges from childhood memories of ritual pre-interstate trips in the family station wagon to visit foot-washing Baptist relatives to young-girl fixations on the Barbie dolls of the title, from the simultaneous exuberance and proto-feminist doubts of young marriage to the aches of loves lost through divorce and death."
Please join us for this fascinating talk from one of our favorite Southern writers!
This event will take place at 2 pm in the Main branch auditorium. It is free and open to the public.
