Peachtree City resident and former FW cover girl, Jill Smith Entrekin, will be signing her lastest novel, Buck’s Junction, at Peachtree City Library on Sunday, August 4th, at 1:00 p.m. Entrekin’s first novel, Start of Flint was released in 2011 by Room 272 Press and has maintained a 5 star rating on Amazon.
Publisher’s Description of Buck’s Junction:
Buck and Lonnie are cousins growing up together in a small Georgia town. They are both gifted athletes and altar boys who enjoy the sweet, simple pleasures of their small town life: watching the train roar through the Junction each day, gazing at the stars from high atop the water tower and hunting with the best bird dog in the county. For Buck and Lonnie, life in the summer of 1960 is good. That is until Uncle Elwood shows up. A mean, sadistic drunk who takes pleasure in tormenting others, Elwood sets his sights on Lonnie and Buck, and their once innocent, idyllic world will change forever.
In the great tradition of Southern writers, Jill Smith Entrekin paints a rich picture of life in a small Southern town featuring colorful characters and lessons about the strength of family and the inevitability of shattered innocence. Buck’s Junction will make you laugh, it will make you cry, and it will remind you that sometimes only a best friend can help you get through the hurdles life puts in your way.
The book signing on Sunday at Peachtree City Library will be followed by the awards ceremony for the “Summer in the Bubble” photo contest at 2 p.m.
