Join them at the Booksmith as they welcome Eleanor Henderson for the debut of her forthcoming novel The Twelve-Mile Straight.
Set in Georgia during the years of the Depression and prohibition, The Twelve-Mile Straight is an American epic about race, inequality, and family that reads like a page-turner and is startlingly timely and relevant. It begins when two babies—one dark-skinned, the other light—are born to the daughter of a sharecropper who operates an illegal distillery. The twins’ birth raises questions that have violent, tragic consequences that continue to reverberate many years into the future.
