Join us for:

Tue, Oct 4th - 7:00pm

Join us as we celebrate the launch of this wonderfully consuming new novel from local author, professor, and co-director of UCSC’s creative writing program Micah Perks. Following a near-fatal accident, Evie, a mild-mannered, pregnant school teacher, abandons her controlling husband and flees California for the wilds of western New York. She rents a farm house on a dead end road in a close-knit community that is divided by local colonial history, a story that goes deep to the roots of the American conscience—and when she begins teaching at the local high school, Evie herself becomes obsessed with The Captivity and Restoration of Mary Rowlandson, the first book written by a woman in the Americas that details Rowlandson's captivity during King Philip's War in the seventeenth century.
