B.B. Rose “THE Bad Ol’ Boys Club”

11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

You are invited to become part of the movement to prevent the victimization of children. “A Future, Not a Past” - a project of the Juvenile Justice Fund, has initiated this project that begins with reading a detective novel!

B. B. Rose, will be in the cafeteria giving books to those who are interested. There is no charge for the books, but you are asked to give her your name and email address so you can be invited to a Discussion and Dessert Town Meeting that will be held late in January to discuss the problem and come away with some action steps to address the problem.

I hope that you will join others throughout Atlanta for this project.

In on-going research commissioned by A Future. Not A Past., which is a campaign to stop the prostitution of children in Georgia, there are 200-300 girls a month in the state prostituted on the streets, over the internet, through escort services and in major hotels. To put that number in context, there are more girls harmed by prostitution in one month in Georgia than are killed in car accidents in an entire year.

Thank You Billy Jobling

Thank you for the outstanding review of The Bad Ol' Boys Club. You have caught the essence of the plot and the characters. You see the interweaving of old Southern charm and just plain evil and how a person can appear to be one thing but keeps hidden another side. I am thrilled that you have enjoyed the book.
B. B. Rose, author
