Meet & Greet with Kay Holz, author of Isabelle Pinckney

July 22, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

In life, there is one person who is destined to be there. Others, friends, lovers, even spouses, ebb and flow, but if you look back from the jigsaw puzzle of life, you will see there was one person who was supposed to be there.

Isabelle Pinckney became a successful writer of young adult fiction while being championed by Margaret Woods, her publisher and best friend from Edisto Island, South Carolina. The relationship is deep, wounded by hidden truths, and tentatively restored when Isabelle marries Will, Margaret’s brother.

Isabelle Pinckney, rooted in the gentle past of the South, takes place in contemporary Charleston, New Orleans, and the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

The novel begins when Isabelle is prompted by Margaret to use her cabin in North Carolina as a refuge to begin her memoir. It is much too early. Unforeseen events upend Isabelle’s life.

Isabelle Pinckney raises the question of just how well can we know someone else.
