Avid Bookshop presents local author Leslie Sinyard for her debut book Don't Look, Just Jump. The event will be held at our Five Points location on Friday, February 17, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There is no admission charge.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
From small-town Louisiana, around the world, and back to Athens, Georgia, journey with Olive Hammons Weathersby and her beloved husband, A.B., a professor of Entomology at the University of Georgia for over 20 years. The first civilian woman to parachute from a military plane, Olive would go on to face many additional challenges, and like many members of the Greatest Generation, she would do so with grace and gratitude.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Leslie Sinyard has lived in Athens, Georgia for 27 years and, like A.B. and Olive, is a tried and true Georgia Bulldog, having graduated from the University of Georgia in 1983 with a degree in International Business and Finance. She is married to Robert and has three adult children who are grateful to have considered Olive Weathersby their Athens grandmother. Don't Look, Just Jump is her first book.
