Mother Daughter Book Club

Come join us for this very special edition of Mother-Daughter Book Club. It's for girls and their moms age 12 and up. We love adult mother/daughter groups too! This will be an in store event, and we ask that you purchase the book and read it ahead of event to make for a lively discussion.

Our February selection is Don't Know Where, Don't Know When  by Annette Laing

This month we feature,  British-born, Atlanta-based historian Dr. Annette Laing. She creatively brings the insights of academic history to the broadest of audiences throughout the United States, with novels, presentations, and performances. She will be available at this event to answer questions, sign books, and generally entertain you with her charming accent and wit.

When California Girl Hannah Dias and her brother Alex move from exciting California to boring Snipesville, they meet kind and clever Brandon Clark, whose ambition is to escape from the Deep South, and the weird Professor, who has a strange secret.
But that's just the beginning.

Without warning, Hannah, Brandon, and Alex are catapulted thousands of miles and nearly eighty years to World War II England. They land in a world of bomb blasts, stinky sandwiches, painful punishments, and non-absorbing toilet paper. They learn so much more than they never would in a history class. Not that they want to learn it.

To get home, all they have to do is find George Braithwaite, whoever he is, and whatever it is he has to do with Snipesville. And what, the reluctant time travelers wonder, does any of this have to do with them?

"I put character and story first, as any good novelist should, but it matters very much that I'm also a historian. Even though you won't often see my research on display front and center, it's there, quietly informing my characters' words and actions. These books are written to make you laugh, cry, and think."

You can purchase your copy at Story on the Square today. This is a 4 part series, so you can get all 4!
