The author calls her novel By Design a love story with a twist. A young Southern designer charged with redesigning a surgical practice falls for the handsome doctor, but conflicts and the past conspire against them. J. Boykin Baker grew up in the small town of Wilson, NC. She knew from the age of seven, after seeing the old movie Pillow Talk, that the only career for her was interior design. After college, marriage, and babies, her dream of being an interior designer came true with the start of her own design firm in Atlanta, GA. As luck would have it, she just happened to be in the right place — at the right time — with the right look and ended up designing hospitals, corporate offices, and high-end residential projects across the nation. Her By Design trilogy follows designer Anne Boyd through her personal and professional life. This event is free but limited seating. RSVP 910.575.5999.
