Janie Treeborne lives on an orchard at the edge of Elberta, Alabama, and in time, she has become its keeper. With the town threatened, Janie sets out to tell the story of its people. This debut novel set in Alabama was heralded as "beautiful, and mythic in ways I would never have been able to imagine" by Daniel Wallace (Extraordinary Adventures). Southern Living named it one of the Best New Books Coming Out Summer 2018. Join us for this Southern tale about how home is a story as much as a place. Caleb Johnson joins us to share Treeborne.
Caleb will be in conversation with Taylor Brown author of Gods of Howl Mountain: A Novel.
