An Evening of Fiction Book Talks & Signings
Elizabeth Geoghegan, author of the bestselling memoir The Marco Chronicles, will discuss and sign eightball ($15.95 Santa Fe Writer’s Project). This collection of eight darkly comic, occasionally violent, tales is anchored by the eponymous “eightball,” a coming of age novella about a sister and brother guided by the inertia of recklessness and self-destruction. A protégé of the late Lucia Berlin, Elizabeth Geoghegan writes lyric, place-driven prose laced with edgy realism and wry wit.
Wendy J. Fox is the author of The Seven Stages of Anger and Other Stories and The Pull of It. She will discuss and sign If the Ice Had Held ($15.95 Santa Fe Writer's Project), which speaks with a natural lyricism, and presents a cast of characters who quietly struggle through complicated lives.. Melanie's life is a lie. Even as an adult, she still doesn't know that the woman who raised her is actually her aunt or that her birth mother visits her almost every day. This secret bonds the two most important women in her life, who hatched a plan to trade places and give Melanie a life unmarred by shame.
