Award-winning playwright and screenwriter Kia Corthon‘s first novel is The Castle Cross the Magnet Carter, in which four boys from small-town America will culminate in an explosive and devastating encounter between their two families. Set in rural Georgia during the Depression, Eleanor Henderson‘s epic novel, The Twelve-Mile Straight, a lynching touches off an exploration of racialized violence, social division, and financial crisis. Tom Franklin‘s novel, Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, tells the riveting story of two boyhood friends, torn apart by circumstance, who are brought together again by a terrible crime in a small Mississippi town.
