Brad Watson | Miss Jane

Happy New Year

Our curbside hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday.

Join Brad Watson for a reading and signing of his new novel, Miss Jane.

Inspired by the true story of his own great-aunt, Brad explores the life of Miss Jane Chisolm, born in a rural, early-twentieth-century Mississippi with a genital birth defect that would stand in the way of the central “uses” for a woman in that time and place – namely, sex and marriage.
From the country doctor who adopts Jane to the hard tactile labor of farm life, from the highly erotic world of nature around her to the boy who loved but was forced to leave her, the world of Miss Jane Chisolm is anything but barren. Free to satisfy only herself, she mesmerizes those around her, exerting an unearthly fascination that lives beyond her still.
