News from the AJC Decatur Book Festival - Featured Author

During the following weeks, we will be featuring various authors who will appear during the AJC Decatur Book festival (September 3-5, 2010 in the City of Decatur)

Featured Author of the Week

This week’s featured author is Susan Rebecca White, author of the critically acclaimed novel, Bound South. White will discuss “Settling Into Your Setting: Place and Fiction,” at 1:15 p.m. Sunday, at Decatur High School. Her new novel, A Soft Place to Land, tells the story of two sisters coming to terms with their parents’ will after their parents are killed in a plane crash.

Spanning nearly two decades, the sisters’ journeys take them from their familiar home in Atlanta to sophisticated bohemian San Francisco, a mountain town in Virginia, the campus of Berkeley, and lofts in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. As they heal from loss, search for love, and begin careers, their sisterhood, once an oasis, becomes complicated by resentment, anger, and jealousy. It seems as though the echoes of their parents’ deaths will never stop reverberating until another shocking accident changes everything once again.
