Decatur Library Auditorium

Doors open at 6:30. Event is free and open to the public, but you must purchase a copy of A Good Neighborhood from Eagle Eye in order to enter the signing line. Join us for an evening with Therese Anne Fowler, the author of the New York Times bestselling novel Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald and A Well-Behaved Woman. Her new novel, A Good Neighborhood, asks big questions about life in America today—what does it mean to be a good neighbor? How do we live alongside each other when we don’t see eye to eye?—as it explores the effects of class, race, and heartrending love in a story that’s as provocative as it is powerful. Therese will be joined in conversation by Atlanta author Jessica Handler. Therese Anne Fowler is a New York Times and USA Today best selling author whose novels present intriguing people in difficult situations, many of those situations deriving from the pressures and expectations of their cultures as well as from their families. Her books are available in every format and in multiple languages, and are sold around the world. Z has been adapted for television by Amazon Studios. A Well-Behaved Woman is in development with Sony Pictures Television.
