Riverine has done its thing to me,” says the Chicago Tribune’s Beth Kephart of DeMotte native Angela Palm’s new memoir. “It has seeped into my blood and left me messy inside — alerted, diverted, and scrambling to get a hold on time. I want a conversation with the author.”

You can have a conversation with the author on October 24th, when Palm will be hosted by the Prairie Arts Council and Saint Joseph’s College to give a public reading from her book.

More details about Palm’s visit will be forthcoming, but in the meantime, you can order a copy of her book, which Graywolf Press calls “a spellbinding memoir of place, young love, and a life-altering crime,” for $9.95 on Amazon here.


Also coming to Rensselaer November 2nd through a partnership with Saint Joseph’s College is a visit from Indiana Poet Laureate Shari Wagner. Again, more details will be forthcoming, but in the meantime, you can read about Shari’s work at www.shariwagnerpoet.com.
