SUSAN CRANDALL

MONDAY, MARCH 10; 7 PM

SUSAN CRANDALL will introduce the softcover edition of Whistling Past the Graveyard, a coming of age story narrated by 9-year-old Starla Claudelle, whose story is an “poignant and indelible as that of Scout Finch or Huckleberry Finn.” Set in the summer of 1963 in Mississippi, Starla is living with her grandmother because she has essentially been abandoned by her parents. Afraid she is going to be sent to reform school, Starla simply walks to the outskirts of town and keeps walking. She accepts a ride from Eula, a black woman traveling alone with a white baby. The trio embarks on a road trip that will change Starla’s life forever... in a good way.

Fans of Kathryn Stockett’s The Help or Harper Lee’s classic To Kill a Mockingbird will especially enjoy Whistling Past the Graveyard.
