Ann B. Ross

:Monday, August 25th:

7:15p.m., Decatur Library Auditorium

Bestselling author Ann B. Ross is back with Etta Mae’s Worst Bad-Luck Day, another lively adventure set in Miss Julia’s Abbotsville. For the first time, though, she writes from the perspective of another resident: the hardscrabble, heart-of-gold Etta Mae Wiggins. A hilarious wild goose chase that takes us from the mansions of Abbotsville to the trailer park that Etta Mae calls home, Ann B. Ross writes with her signature wit and southern charm, calling upon a number of familiar faces (including Miss Julia, who narrates the first chapter) as the story unfolds.
