So looking forward to this event with Genanne Walsh, the author of Twister, in which I will try to sound intelligent about her very wise and beautiful debut novel. Please join us! Cake and bubbly, too!

Twister won the Black Lawrence Press publication prize and was a finalist for the Brighthorse Prize. Set in a small Midwestern town steeped in its own history, the storms in Twister begin to build as a tight-knit community mourns the death of a young soldier. In a constellation of family, friends, and neighbors, the story unfolds as the town secrets are illuminated, pasts are resurrected, and lives are shaken to the core. Twister is terrifying and humorous, clear-eyed and deep-hearted.
Genanne Walsh is the author of Twister. Excerpts appeared in earlier form in Puerto del Sol, Blackbird, and Red Earth Review. She holds an MFA from Warren Wilson College and lives in San Francisco.
