Shea Ernshaw in Conversation With Amanda Montell

December 8, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

From Shea Ernshaw, author of The Wicked Deep, comes a richly atmospheric adult debut following three residents of a secluded, seemingly peaceful commune as they investigate the disappearances of two outsiders. Travis Wren has an unusual talent for locating missing people. Hired by families as a last resort, he requires only a single object to find the person who has vanished. When he takes on the case of Maggie St. James — a well-known author of dark, macabre children’s books — he’s led to a place many believed to be only a legend. Called Pastoral, this reclusive community was founded in the 1970s by like-minded people searching for a simpler way of life. By all accounts, the commune shouldn’t exist anymore and soon after Travis stumbles upon it… he disappears. Just like Maggie St. James. Years later, Theo, a lifelong member of Pastoral, discovers Travis’s abandoned truck beyond the border of the community. No one is allowed in or out, not when there’s a risk of bringing a disease — rot — into Pastoral. Unraveling the mystery of what happened reveals secrets that Theo, his wife, Calla, and her sister, Bee, keep from one another. Secrets that prove their perfect, isolated world isn’t as safe as they believed — and that darkness takes many forms. Hauntingly beautiful, hypnotic, and bewitching, A History of Wild Places (Atria) is a story about fairy tales, our fear of the dark, and losing yourself within the wilderness of your mind. Ernshaw will be joined in conversation by Amanda Montell, author of Cultish and Wordslut.
