Left Bank Books welcomes acclaimed author Hannah Pittard, who will sign and discuss her new novel, “Visible Empire”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Visible Empire” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

On a humid summer day, the phones begin to ring: disaster has struck. Chateau de Sully, a Boeing 707 chartered to ferry home more than one hundred of Atlanta’s most prominent citizens from a European jaunt, crashed in Paris shortly after takeoff. It is the second-deadliest disaster in the history of aviation. Overnight, the city of Atlanta changes. Left behind are children, spouses, lovers, and friends faced with renegotiating their lives. “Visible Empire” is an epic novel—based on true events—of love, grief, race, and wealth, charting a single sweltering summer in Atlanta that left no one unchanged, a story of the promise and hope that remain in the wake of crisis.
