Southern author Janie Dempsey Watts has written two novels: Moon Over Taylor's Ridge and Return to Taylor's Crossing. Both were set in North Georgia, the area where she resides. But she’s also spent decades in California and traveled globally. Her newest work is a collection of short stories, Mothers, Sons, Beloveds, and Other Strangers, and the collection is divided, geographically, into three sections: stories set in the South, stories set in California, and stories in Europe.
Watts and other Chattanooga-area authors will have a reading at Star Line Books starting at 2:30 pm on December 2nd. Information is here.
