An Afternoon with Michigan Author Bonnie Jo Campbell

February 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

“Campbell, who lives outside Kalamazoo, MI, is one of American fiction’s leading voices about rural life: the struggle to make a living, the beauty of the wild environment, the thorny & sometimes violent relationships between men & women, & the economic & industrial pressures that threaten everything…”
(Jim Higgins, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

Join your local independent bookstore & library as we host acclaimed author Bonnie Jo Campbell for an afternoon of conversation, featuring a reading by the author of her just-released novel, The Waters. The novel is one of Oprah Daily’s “Best Books of 2024” & is The Today Show’s January Pick for the “Read with Jenna” Book Club. Copies of her books will be available for purchase, & a book signing will follow.
