Karen reads from new YA novel at Youngstown on November 22

Thanks to a generous grant from 4 Culture, I spent nine weeks this fall writing the first four chapters of my second book of young adult fiction with the working title, “Starbird Murphy and the World Outside.” BE THE FIRST TO HEAR THE START OF THIS NEW WORK!

The novel is set in Seattle and rural Washington State and tells the story of Starbird Murphy, a girl who grows up on a commune until age sixteen when she receives a potentially divine calling to attend public school.

The event starts at 7pm and will feature a short reading (just four chapters!) followed by informal discussion. Youth and adults are welcome. Please join me!
