New York Times bestselling author Joshilyn Jackson writes "weirdo fiction with a shot of Southern Gothic influence for smart people who can catch the nuances, who like narrative drive, and who have a sense of humor but who are willing to go down to dark places." She visits the library to celebrate the paperback launch of her novel, The Opposite of Everyone. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Co-sponsored by the library and Avid Bookshop.
