Join Asheville';s Flatiron Writers for a FREE reading and book signing by award-winning memoirist Norma Watkins, in conversation with novelist Marjorie Klein, discussing Norma’s newest memoir, THAT WOMAN FROM MISSISSIPPI (Nautilus Publishing, 2017). Norma Watkins was raised to be a proper white Southern lady in 1960s Jackson, Mississippi. The daughter of a segregationist who defended Jim Crow laws, she married at nineteen, became a housewife, and had four children. But she shocked her friends and family by giving it all up.  Uncomfortable with the repression and bigotry in her world, she left her husband and young children for a chance at a new life where she could speak her mind, earn her own money, and find her own freedom. When asked what her books are about, Watkins says, “Civil rights, women wronged, good food, and bad sex.” Marjorie Klein is the author of the novel Test Pattern (Wm. Morrow Publishers, 2000), which was a Barnes and Noble "Discover Great New Writers" selection. Her creative nonfiction has appeared in various publications, including 20 years of free-lance work for Tropic, the Miami Herald's Sunday magazine. This event is sponsored by Asheville’s Flatiron Writers.
