Join us for an author talk and book signing event with Dr. Jo Whitten May.

ETHEL! Leave Her Alone! is a story about a southern girl growing up in a changing society. Born in Mississippi in 1935, Betty Jo Whitten was different from day one. Her first sentence was, "Me do it me self!" Even as a young child she seemed to believe that all the privileges available to boys would also be available to her. The life she has lived since then has made - and is making - that equality a reality for the women who follow her.
