The Booksmith | 1644 Haight Street, San Francisco, CA 94117



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.

Free and an RSVP is appreciated but not required.
