Book and a Beer with Jessica Handler

Join us on Monday, June 24 at 7 pm for Book and a Beer with the Jessica Handler.  Facilitated by our friend Brett Barest (who will introduce the beer and the author), Jessica will give a short reading from her new book, The Magnetic Girl, followed by a Q&A time. A sample of beer is free, and books are available for purchase.  


Set in rural north Georgia two decades after the Civil War, The Magnetic Girl tells the story of a young girl who convinces her family that she has magnetic powers.  It's a unique portrait of a forgotten period in history, seen through the story of one young woman’s power over her family, her community, and ultimately, herself.  Join us - maybe you'll discover your own super-power while you're here!
