More Description

In spring 1962, a young black girl is killed at a civil rights demonstration on a university campus in Atlanta. The next day a home in Georgia is burned. Both events are etched into the memory of Cole Bishop, eerily playing out the predictions of a former classmate named Marie Fitzpatrick. Cole and Marie are high school seniors when they first meet in fall 1954. He is a native-born Southerner accepting the traditions of segregation as a way of life. Marie is a recent transplant from Washington, DC, a brilliant and assertive nonconformist with bold predictions about a new world that is about to be ushered in by desegregation. The story revolves around the fiftieth reunion of the Overton High School class of 1955. The Book of Marie is the story of a generation?whites and blacks?who ignited the war of change. Yet, it is also as much about the power of place?the finding of home?as it is about the history of events.
