Join Ernest & Hadley Books on Saturday, July 13 from 1-2:30 PM as we welcome Jan Pruitt, who was largely responsible for completing Mary Allen Jolley's posthumously released memoir, Accidental Activist: Changing the World One Small Step at a Time.

As beloved in her personal life as she was respected in her career, Mary’s joyous engagement in living has influenced generations of her family, friends, and co-workers to embrace her example and work to make the world a better place for everyone.

"Why I finally wrote this book: In these later years of my life, some friends and colleagues have told me I should tell about my life and some things I helped to get accomplished. I’ve resisted doing that, but now, though I know my story is not going to change the world by itself, I’ve decided to tell it because it might help somebody else see that they can help change things for the better."

You get old and you realize that there are no answers: there are just stories. -- Garrison Keillor
Stories can change the world. -- Rick Bragg
