Mary Stewart Atwell Reading & Booksigning

24 Oct 2012

On Wednesday, October 24, 7 pm at Malaprop's Bookstore & Cafe, Mary Stewart Atwell wil present
her debut novel, Wild Girls. Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia, has written, "Fire-lit from start to finish, Wild Girls is a story of Appalachian magic, conflagration, and supernatural violence; it is also a quiet and keenly perceptive account of the close ties (and the noose knots) that bind adolescent female friendships. Atwell has written a fantastic hybrid, part horror story and part bildungsroman: an elegy to the midnight selves that girls try to destroy, overcome, 'outgrow' on the way to adulthood, and a testament to their uncanny resilience."

This event is free and open to the public.
