Jonathan Rabb

Novelist Jonathan Rabb will wear two hats at the 2017 Savannah Book Festival this week, where he is both a featured writer and board member. His latest book, Among the Living, is set in his adopted hometown of Savannah, where he also teaches in the writing program at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).

Jonathan spoke with us about his experience as a writer living in Savannah and he hit some highlights of what to expect at the 10th annual Savannah Book Festival. In addition to festival headliners, James Patterson, Colson Whitehead and Christina Baker Kline, forty authors will speak, greet readers and sell and sign books this Saturday at venues and squares in the historic district.
