Vroman's is OPEN for in-store shopping & curbside pick-up seven days a week.

Jonathan O’Dell discusses and signs Miss Hazel & the Rosa Parks League

Set in pre-Civil Rights Mississippi, and inspired by his Mississippi childhood, Odell tells the story of two young mothers, Hazel and Vida – one wealthy and white and the other poor and black – who have only two things in common: the devastating loss of their children, and a deep and abiding loathing for one another.  After drunkenly crashing her car, Hazel is sedated and bed-ridden. Vida is then hired by Hazel’s husband to keep tabs on her and care for their only surviving son.  Forced to spend time together, these two women realize that they have more in common that they thought and strive to make changes in their segregated town.   
Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted. Save your Vroman's receipt; it will be checked when you enter the signing line.
