Read It Again Bookstore is very excited to welcome Jessica Handler and Mickey Dubrow to our online author series. Jessica and Mickey are good friends of RIA and book club favorites. This married couple is self distancing together in their Atlanta home with their cats, work and their library. This should be an interesting discussion about GA history, politics, vaudeville, and humor in dark times. Join us Thursday, April 23 at 4 pm. You can watch on our Facebook and YouTube pages.
