Author Talk and Book Signing Feat. Anita Gail Jones
Underground Books


Anita Gail Jones will be introducing her debut novel The Peach Seed, published by Henry Holt/Macmillan Books. It has received glowing praise from several writers such as A.J. Verdelle, author of The Good Negress and Miss Chloe, and Alice Randall, award-winning author of The Wind Done Gone.

The story, which takes place in Anita’s home state of Georgia, is a stirring family drama. In this masterful Finalist for a PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction, Fletcher Dukes and Altovise Benson reunite after five decades apart-and a mountain of secrets-exploring how one family lives amid the present repercussions of personal choice and history’s sweep. An indelible portrait of a family, The Peach Seed explores how kin pass down legacies of sorrow, joy, and strength.
