reading & booksigning for "Up High in the Trees"
Monday, June 23 at 7:00 pm
In spare, beautifully rendered prose buoyed by the life force of its small, fearless narrator, "Up High in the Trees" introduces a fresh and powerful new writer, Kiara Brinkman. Told in the startling and deeply affecting voice of a nine-year-old autistic boy, this remarkable debut novel (just out in softcover) is the story of a family in turmoil. It is also the story of Sebby Lane, the Little Prince of our times. Don’t miss this event!
Kiara Brinkman grew up in the Midwest and in California. Her writing has appeared in McSweeney’s, Pindeldyboyz, and other publications. She has been working with children and books her whole life.
