Joanna Rose in Conversation With Susan Leslie Moore
September 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
How does a librarian from New Jersey end up in a convenience store on Vancouver Island in the middle of the night, playing Bible Scrabble with a Korean physicist and a drunk priest? She gets married to the wrong man for starters — she didn’t know he was “that kind of Catholic” — and ends up in St. Cloud, Minnesota. She gets a job in a New Age bookstore, wanders toward Buddhism without realizing it, and acquires a dog. Things get complicated after that. Pattianne Anthony is less a thinker than a dreamer, and she finds out the hard way that she doesn’t want a husband, much less a baby, and that getting out of a marriage is a lot harder than getting into it, especially when the landscape of the west becomes the voice of reason. A Small Crowd of Strangers (Forest Avenue), Joanna Rose’s second novel, is part love story, part slightly sideways spiritual journey. Rose will be joined in conversation by Susan Leslie Moore, author of That Place Where You Opened Your Hands.
