ABOUT GONE WE GOT
From the wood–paneled basements of Ohio to the end of the world, Dina Guidubaldi’s characters have gone wandering, searching for a way home. In How Gone We Got, their efforts to befriend the unfamiliar result in confusion, frustration and violence, but their awkward interactions—with everything from robots to sea creatures to fallen celebrities—send the reader into unexpected and unapologetic territory.

ABOUT What Burns Away
Good wife, good mother. That’s all Claire Spruce is trying to be, but the never-ending snow in this new town and her workaholic husband are making her crazy. Even the sweet face of her toddler son can’t pull her out of the dark places in her head. Feeling overwhelmed and alone, she reconnects with her long-lost high school boyfriend, Dean, who offers an intoxicating, reckless escape. But Dean’s reappearance is not a coincidence. He wants something from Claire—and she soon finds that the cost of repaying an old favor may lead to the destructions of her entire life. What Burns Away is a story of loyalty, family, and the consequences of the past’s inevitable collision with our future. Can't make it to the event?
