Each year, Thomas County, GA, selects a book to read as an entire community in a “One Book One County” celebration, which engages people of all ages with cultural and educational activities. The 2018 selection is We Were the Lucky Ones and will feature an author presentation on October 4. The Bookshelf, a “One Book” sponsor, talked with the author for its podcast, From the Front Porch. (Interview starts about 3 minutes in.)
