The John Cooper School's 16th Annual Signatures Author Series features Jesmyn Ward, author of Sing, Unburied, Sing. Ward is a two-time National Book Award winner and bestselling author. Frequently likened to such authors as William Faulkner and Toni Morrison, Ward’s distinctive poetic style of writing illuminates tales of hope and struggle. Her three novels are all set on the Gulf Coast.

The event also features visiting authors, book signings, a VIP reception, and an auction of an item signed by the author. A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to a local literacy organization. The venue requires masks and social distancing for all attendees and staff.
