Sacramento poet Alice Anderson survived Hurricane Katrina, and then her husband. When he held her at knife point, her 3-year-old son saved her. Learn more about her Southern Gothic memoir, Some Bright Morning, I’ll Fly Away, at Time Tested Books, where Anderson will give a reading of her lyrical prose and sign books. 1114 21st Street,
