Jo Watson Hackl will talk about her writing. Bring your questions about By the River and Jo’s writing!

ABOUT JO WATSON HACKL

Author Jo Watson Hackl is a Greenville, South Carolina-based corporate attorney who also founded Outdoorosity.org, a resource celebrating the treasures and curiosities of nature with stories, know-how and inspiration to get readers outside. Her debut novel, Smack Dab in the Middle of Maybe, was published by Random House Children’s Books and was awarded the Southern Book Prize. It went on to become a Publisher’s Weekly Bestseller and earned Jo the Mississippi Library Association’s 2020 Children’s Author of the Year Award. The book appeals to young and adults readers alike and takes readers on an adventure with 12-year-old Cricket, who runs away to survive on her own in an overgrown Southern ghost town, all to try to solve a 30-year-old clue trail left by an eccentric artist with a logic all his own. The clue trail was inspired by the secret room created by Southern artist Walter Inglis Anderson. To write the novel, Jo studied outdoor survival, art history, poetry, psychology, and rare birds. Jo is currently writing her next novel, set in the Carolinas. That book also combines an art mystery clue trail and outdoor adventure.
