One Book, One Kirkwood: Stephanie Powell Watts – No One Is Coming to Save Us

Wednesday, May 2, 7pm
Nipher Middle School North Gymnasium

This year’s choice for One Book, One Kirkwood is No One is Coming to Save Us by Stephanie Powell Watts! 

JJ Ferguson's return home to Pinewood, North Carolina and his plans to build a huge mansion overlooking the town and pursue his high school sweetheart, Ava, not only unsettles their family, but stirs up the entire town. The ostentatious wealth that JJ has attained forces everyone to consider what more they want and deserve from life than what they already have-and how they might go about getting it. Can they shape their lives to align with their wishes rather than their realities? Or are they already resigned to the rhythms of the particular lives they lead? 

“Patient yet rich . . . Watts powerfully depicts the struggles many Americans face trying to overcome life’s inevitable disappointments. But it’s the compassion she feels for her characters’ vulnerability and desires . . . that make the story so relevant and memorable.” —Publishers Weekly
