Join us August 7th as we discuss ‘All the Way Home.” In this coming of age tale, two boys navigate their growing awareness of the Civil Rights Movement, racial inequality, and the meaning of love and family. They witness a searing out-of-control jury trial that alters their family, their reality, and their hearts forever. A Sandy Springs native, author Edward Buckley, uses his experiences growing up in the Mount Vernon Woods neighborhood to inform at least some of the events in All The Way Home. Son of famed Atlanta Civil Rights attorney Ferdinand Buckley, Edward remembers their dinner table as a virtual classroom on the Civil Rights Movement and in politics in general. With an education that most kids didn’t have, Edward later became a lawyer himself, practicing first with his father, before striking out on his own and starting a firm practicing law in the civil rights arena. This program is supported by Bookmiser New and Used Books, and funding for this program is provided by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, and the Sandy Springs Society.
