Sherry Kafka Wagner Book Launch for HANNAH JACKSON

November 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+5


Author Sherry Kafka Wagner is thrilled to announce the re-release of her 1966 novel Hannah Jackson, by TCU Press as part of the 46th issue of the Texas Traditions Series. The Texas Traditions Series seeks to promote Texas literary culture by reprinting classic works of Texas literature that otherwise would disappear from bookstores and libraries. 

Hannah Jackson tells the tale of the tumultuous life of its title character through the fictional townspeople of Fremond, Texas. Tackling issues of class, adultery, love, judgment, redemption, and tragedy, Hannah Jackson is an all-too-real account of life in small-town Texas in the early half of the 20th century. It’s a highly relevant portrayal of the oppression of social conventions during times of change.

First published in 1966, Hannah Jackson chronicles the turbulence of the ’60s and remains a highly relevant novel depicting the oppression of social conventions during times of change.

Gemini Ink Executive Director Alexandra Vandekamp will be the moderator for the evening. Wagner will do a short reading followed by a Q&A and book signing. Books will be available for purchase. This event is co-hosted by the Twig Book Shop, Hotel Emma, and Gemini Ink. 

COVID-19 safety procedures will be followed and guests are required to wear masks.

Free and open to the public; a cash bar will be available.


Sherry Kafka Wagner grew up in Arkansas and studied with Paul Baker at Baylor University. She attended the University of Iowa, where her novel Hannah Jackson was developed. She was a Loeb Fellow at Harvard University, and she regularly consults nationally and internationally for a number of museums, aquariums, parks, and urban projects.
