Lucy Vick-Watson I had the opportunity to attend the American Dirt signing in Nashville, TN, on January 25th. The event started out addressing the controversy surrounding the book, and unfortunately things quickly took a negative turn. The author did her best to share her heart and her motivations but people in the crowd who felt ga ticket about the book would not let up. The second half of the signing that was designated for questions turned into a moral debate surrounding her book. The entire situation was sad, you could see the hurt on her face and feel it in the room. I’m sure situations like these are a major piece of why the tour was canceled.
