Literary luncheon featuring bestselling, critically acclaimed and debut authors hosted by founder Linda Ketron.
Featuring Susan Cushman (John and Mary Margaret).
When a Black boy from Memphis and a white girl from Jackson, Mississippi, fall in love on the Ole Miss campus in 1966, all hell breaks loose. Set within the backdrop of growing protests against centuries of social injustice, their relationship is doomed, but maybe not forever. Will there be enough progress in race relations to offer a new cultural milieu for them one day? John and Mary Margaret is a fictional story set in the midst of historic places, people, and events spanning over a half century in the Deep South. Their story will challenge the status quo and give us another opportunity to examine our history and our hearts.
