New York Times best selling author Andra Watkins will be the guest author at our Book with Brunch in December. Andra has written both fiction and a memoir called Not Without My Father: One Woman’s 444-Mile Walk of the Natchez Trace. This is a story about her dysfunctional family adventure and Natchez Trace: Tracks in Time is a book of photography taken during that journey. Her newest book, I Am Number 13 is the third novel in her Nowhere Series. The in-between world called Nowhere is where people go when their deaths are unsolved. This book explores the life of Emmaline Cagney and the death of General James Wilkinson. To Live Forever was the first book of that series and it explored the murder (or suicide?) of Merry Lewis. After that, she wrote Hard to Die, an afterlife story of Theodosia Burr Alston, tragic daughter of Aaron Burr. If you want to hear about these fascinating stories from the author, please reserve your seat now.
