Tonight at the bookstore, we are excited to be hosting a reading with debut novelist Shelley Read! Her book , Go As A River was published earlier this month to much fanfare, and the chance to support an author from our neck of the woods on the Colorado Plateau is one we love to jump at. Below is a bit about this beautiful novel:
“Shelley Read’s debut novel was inspired by true events surrounding the destruction of the town of Iola, Colorado in the 1960s. Go as a River is a story of deeply held love in the face of hardship and loss, but also of finding courage, resilience, friendship, and, finally, home—where least expected. This stunning debut explores what it means to lead your life as if it were a river—gathering and flowing, finding a way forward even when a river is dammed.”
See you at @backofbeyondbooks tonight, 7pm!
