J. Nicole Jones presents Low Country: A Southern Memoir
In conversation with Allie Rowbottom

Greenlight is thrilled to host our neighbor J. Nicole Jones for her new book, Low Country, an incandescent debut memoir of one family’s changing fortunes in the Low Country of South Carolina, a tale inseparable from the region’s storms and shipwrecks. After a girlhood of extreme wealth and deep debt, of ghosts and folklore, of cruel men, Jones finds herself face-to-face with an explosive possibility concerning her long-abused grandmother that she can neither speak nor shake. And through the lens of her own family’s catastrophes and triumphs, Jones pays homage to the landscapes and legends of her childhood home, a region haunted by its history, where Eliza Pinckney cultivates indigo, Blackbeard ransacks the coast, and the Gray Man paces the beach, warning of Hurricane Hazel. Allie Rowbottom, critically acclaimed author of the memoir Jell-O Girls, joins Jones in a captivating conversation on ghosts, legends, and family.
