Jo Watson Hackl, Smack Dab in the Middle of Maybe
October 13, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Jo Watson Hackl travels to McIntyre’s Books for the premiere of her new book, Smack Dab in the Middle of Maybe. A Mississippi ghost town and an art mystery combine in this gorgeously written debut just right for fans of Three Times Lucky and A Snicker of Magic! How far would you go to find something that might not even exist?
Jo Watson Hackl was born in Biloxi, Mississippi, not far from Ocean Springs, where her favorite artist, Walter Anderson, lived and once painted a secret room. When Jo was eleven, she moved to a real-life ghost town, Electric Mills, Mississippi, and spent the rest of her childhood exploring the woods and encountering signs of the former inhabitants. Mr. Anderson’s secret room and the ghost town were Jo’s inspiration for this debut novel. Jo lives with her family in Greenville, South Carolina, where she raises fruits, vegetables, and many, many weeds.
