Tuesday, June 26th 6-7:30PM On a humid summer day, the phones begin to ring: disaster has struck. Chateau de Sully, a Boeing 707 chartered to ferry home more than one hundred of Atlanta’s most prominent citizens from a European jaunt, crashed in Paris shortly after takeoff. It is the second-deadliest disaster in the history of aviation. Overnight, the city of Atlanta changes. Left behind are children, spouses, lovers, and friends - faced with renegotiating their lives. Robert, a newspaper editor, must decide if he can reconnect with his beloved but estranged wife, whose swindler parents have left her penniless. Nineteen-year-old Piedmont Dobbs, recently denied admission to an integrated school, senses a moment of uncertain opportunity. And Mayor Ivan Allen is tasked with the job of moving Atlanta forward—the hedonism of the 60s and the urgency of the Civil Rights movement at his city’s doorstep. This book is available in hardcover ($25.00). Hannah Pittard discusses and signs her book, Visible Empire. If you are unable to attend, you must call the book shop to order signed books. Event date: Tuesday, June 26, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm Event address: Garden District Book Shop 2727 Prytania Street New Orleans, LA 70130 Hannah Pittard: Visible Empire
