Norma Watkins In Conversation with Jean Forrister

Norma Watkins will be returning to City Lights Bookstore onSaturday, Dec. 9th at 1 p.m. (rescheduled from 12/8) to present That Woman From Mississippi, the sequel to her first memoir. She will have a conversation about the book with Jean Forrister. The first book, The Last Resort, describes coming of age in the civil rights movement, with the book ending when she leaves Mississippi. The sequel explores the consequences of exile. The nurturing mother is our model, and society does not easily forgive a woman who leaves her children. Humorous and discerning, the book shows how excruciating it is for women to do what men take for granted: find a harmony in love, work and parenting. To reserve copies of her books please call City Lights Bookstore in Sylva, NC at 828-586-9499.
