Talk and Signing

  • Lake Blackshear Regional Library 307 E. Lamar Street Americus, GA 31709 (map)

The Class of '65 goes home, returning to the town where the story is set: Americus, Ga. At the Lake Blackshear library, Jim will talk about the book, read a selection, and discuss the dramatic events with the main character, Greg Wittkamper. Some of the classmates who reached out to Greg years later will be there, as will some of the students who desegregated Americus High School in 1964. Koinonia Farms, where Greg grew up, will be on hand to sell copies of the book. We'll leave ample time for questions; the people of Americus, who lived this tale, might have a few.
