Jocelyn Nicole Johnson, author of ‘My Monticello,’ is excited about the film rendition of her book about a historic day in Charlottesville.

She says the book references familiar places in Charlottesville, bringing the area widespread recognition.

Famous authors like Roxanne Gay and Colson Whitehead called the book “electrifying” and “unforgettable”.
