Amanda Gable at Malaprop's

August 29

Amanda Gable reads from and signs her new book, The Confederate General Rides North, in which Katherine McConnell, an 11-year-old Civil War buff, discovers new questions about history and her relationship with her mother during an impromptu road trip that passes through noted Civil War landmarks. "Meet eleven-year-old Katherine McConnell, a whip-smart and enchanting heroine whose imaginary life as a Civil War general helps her navigate her family's own troubled history and the unpredictable battlefield of adolescence. Gable's rendering of Kat is note-perfect, and she spins her journey with a deft mix of humor and pathos. The Confederate General Rides North is vibrant, bighearted, and wholly original. I love this book and can't recommend it loudly enough." — Joshilyn Jackson , bestselling author of Gods in Alabama
