Josh Russell, the bestselling author of Yellow Jack, will be at the Center for the Book with his exciting second novel, My Bright Midnight. It’s a wonderfully engrossing story about a German immigrant named Walt, haunted by his past and trying to find a place for himself in the decadent, steamy city of New Orleans. Pulitzer Prize-winner Natasha Trethewey calls the novel ”a compelling invocation of the way people build, from the ntruth of their lives, something they can live with, the endless possibilities of beginnings.” Russell teaches creative writing at Georgia State University in Atlanta. Join us for a special reception and book signing to welcome this gifted author’s eagerly awaited second novel.
