We are thrilled to welcome bestselling author Bonnie Jo Campbell back to the store this summer. Ms. Campbell will be joining us for an in-store signing on Friday, August 17 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. This is a free event and no reservations are required. Ms. Campbell will be signing copies of the paperback of Once Upon a River.
Ms. Campbell is the author of several previous volumes of work, including American Salvage, which was a finalist for the National Book Award in 2009.
Once Upon a River tells the stoy of an "unforgettable heroine in sixteen-year-old Margo Crane, a beauty whose
unflinching gaze and uncanny ability with a rifle have not made her life
any easier. After the violent death of her father, in which she is
complicit, Margo takes to the Stark River in her boat, with only a few
supplies and a biography of Annie Oakley, in search of her vanished
mother. But the river, Margo's childhood paradise, is a dangerous place
for a young woman traveling alone, and she must be strong to survive,
using her knowledge of the natural world and her ability to look
unsparingly into the hearts of those around her. Her river odyssey
through rural Michigan becomes a defining journey, one that leads her
beyond self-preservation and to the decision of what price she is
willing to pay for her choices."
