Tammy Lynne Stoner, with Jillian Lauren & Siel Ju, discusses and signs Sugar Land

Sugar Land is a southern fried novel about love, Lead Belly, and liberation. According to Lambda Award winner Kate Carroll de Gutes, this debut "stacks up with some of the best Southern storytelling out there and should have a place on the bookshelf next to Fannie Flagg and Rita Mae Brown." It's 1923 in Midland, Texas, and Miss Dara falls in love with her best friend―who also happens to be a girl. Terrified, Miss Dara takes a job at the Imperial State Prison Farm for men. Once there, she befriends inmate and soon-to-be legendary blues singer Lead Belly, who sings his way out (true story)―but only after he makes her promise to free herself from her own prison. Sugar Land is a triumphant, beautiful novel about the heart's refusal to be denied what the heart wants.
