The Yonahlossee Riding Club for Girls author to sign at FoxTale

FoxTale Book Shoppe kicks of their week-long author extravaganza with NY Times bestselling author Anton DiSclafani with the paperback release of the  The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls! Co-owner Ellen Ward shared, "This was a Fox Favorite last year that both Karen and I loved and we couldn't be happier to have her visit FoxTale!" Emily Giffin, Dorothea Benton Frank, Oliver North, Lily Koppel and Jolina Petersheim will visit FoxTale over the next week.

It is 1930, the midst of the Great Depression. After her mysterious role in a family tragedy, passionate, strong-willed Thea Atwell, age fifteen, has been cast out of her Florida home, exiled to an equestrienne boarding school for Southern debutantes. High in the Blue Ridge Mountains, with its complex social strata ordered by money, beauty, and girls’ friendships, the Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls is a far remove from the free-roaming, dreamlike childhood Thea shared with her twin brother on their family’s citrus farm—a world now partially shattered. As Thea grapples with her responsibility for the events of the past year that led her here, she finds herself enmeshed in a new order, one that will change her sense of what is possible for herself, her family, her country.

Weaving provocatively between home and school, the narrative powerfully unfurls the true story behind Thea’s expulsion from her family, but it isn’t long before the mystery of her past is rivaled by the question of how it will shape her future. Part scandalous love story, part heartbreaking family drama, The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls is an immersive, transporting page-turner—a vivid, propulsive novel about sex, love, family, money, class, home, and horses, all set against the ominous threat of the Depression—and the major debut of an important new writer.

This is a free event. DiSclafani will be signing books purchased from FoxTale Book Shoppe. All event information can be found at www.foxtalebookshoppe.com/events. FoxTale is located at 105 E. Main Street in Downtown Woodstock adjacent to the Gazebo. Phone 770-516-9989
