June Hall McCash professor, Middle Tennessee State University [homepage]

June Hall McCash, the author of three very popular and informative coastal histories The Jekyll Island Club, The Jekyll Island Cottage Colony and Jekyll Island’s Early Years, discusses her new historical novel, Almost to Eden. The setting is Jekyll Island and nearby Brunswick, and it is a story about an Irish immigrant, Maggie O’Brien, who comes to the Georgia coast hoping for freedom and a new life and who finds herself caught up in the lives of coastal residents. McCash has taught at Emory University and is the 1996 Outstanding Alumna Award winner from Agnes Scott College in Decatur.
