Overview

On Tuesday, September 5th, Titles @ Twilight features Kathy Wilson Florence. From 1999 to 2014, Florence’s weekly column “Over the Picket Fence” appeared in the Dunwoody Crier. Now, in 2017, she is debuting her first novel set in the turbulent South as Jim Crow laws come to an end. Josie Flint’s idyllic childhood in 1960s Atlanta is defined by her role as the oldest of the three Flint sisters and crowned with the presence of her grandmother, Annie Jo – the maypole that centers the Flint family. As Josie’s school desegregates and the country meanders through new ideas brought about by the Civil Rights movement, a personal tragedy breaches Josie’s world and shatters that perfect childhood.
