Wednesday, December 6, 6 p.m.: Norma Watkins will read from and sign copies of her new memoir, That Woman From Mississippi. This sequel to The Last Resort opens with Norma Watkins’ flight from Mississippi during the civil rights movement and explores the consequences of exile. The nurturing mother is our model, and society does not easily forgive a woman who leaves her children. Partnered with the powerful and attractive civil rights lawyer who carried her away, Watkins tries to balance the love she feels for him and for graduate school and teaching with guilt over that loss. In the face of betrayal, she realizes how ridiculous it was to free herself from one man by fastening herself to another. 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.
