Searching For Atticus book talk & signing with Janice Harvey
September 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Molly Medavoy is having a hard time remembering she’s a kid since her father Frank took off on an “extended tour of the Southwest” that never ends. Life with her mother Twig and her quirky little sister Arlene is no picnic. Twig spends most of her days exploring ways to lose weight, while Arlene lines up cold cuts on the linoleum floor. Molly digs deeper into the books she borrows from the library, looking for some answers, wondering if a dad like Atticus Finch really exists. No one pays much attention to Molly – no one but Uncle Timmy, the long-lost Medavoy who shows up on the front stoop.
It’s up to Molly to figure things out for herself as she watches the world spin, from November of 1963 until that tumultuous decade comes to an end. For Molly, the search for an Atticus of her own unearths a few secrets better left buried.
