What happens when we view our neighbors as "The Other"? What is the power of unlikely friendship? We invite you to a reading by Lauren Davis from her new novel. This is 'Backwood Noir' at its best. For generations the Erskine clan has lived in poverty and isolation on North Mountain, shunned by the God-fearing people of nearby Gideon. Now, Albert Erskine comes down off the mountain hoping to change the future for his brothers and sisters and sets in motion a chain of events that will change everything. Inspired by a atrue story. Lauren B. Davis is the author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed novels The Radiant City (finalist for the Rogers Writers Trust Fiction Prize) and The Stubborn Season (chosen for the Robert Adams Lecture Series), as well as of two collections of short stories, An Unrehearsed Desire and Rat Medicine & Other Unlikely Curatives.
