All Ages Event - Meet Local Author

Meet Deanie Yasner

Join Us Thursday, February 25th at 7 PM  to discuss Essie Rose's Revelation Summer a book that highlights the struggles of a young Jewish girl in a small Mississippi town in the summer of 1953,  during the time of segregation, racism and antisemitism. The story focuses on her relationship with her best and only friend, Pearlie May Gibbs, who is African American, and who served as the family housekeeper.  Inspired by the author’s childhood experiences in the Jim Crow South, Ms. Yasner’s coming-of-age debut novel is a moving, multi-layered, and meticulously researched story of loneliness and loyalty, bullying and friendship, loss and courage. While the story is set almost 70 years ago, its themes are still relevant today. This event is free to the public, and while the book was written with an audience of middle school aged readers in mind, adults are encouraged to attend either with their children, or on their own. This story is timeless, and very relatable to adults who grew up in the pre-Civil Rights movement of the 1950s-60s.
