We invite you to a very special event: the launch party for the wonderful Atlanta author Joshilyn Jackson’s fabulous new novel, ”A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty.” The book will go on sale today, and we’ll have the first editions all ready for signing at this reception in her honor. The new novel, which New York times bestselling author Sara Gruen calls ”giddy and enthralling and a little bit dangerous,” is already getting rave notices. It’s a spellbinding story told in the voices of three women in one family: a grandmother, a mother and a young daughter, each given vital and stirring voices. Their lives will grip you as they struggle with hardships and face crises born of a devastating secret. Joshilyn Jackson’s very popular novels include ”Gods in Alabama,” ”Between, Georgia” ”Backseat Saints” and ”The Girl Who Stopped Swimming.” No tickets or reservations needed for this program, and doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
