The Book Cellar book club meets to discuss The Wind is Not a River by Brian Payton. As always, everyone is welcome and wine and beer are 50% off!
The Book Cellar welcomes local author Leslie Parry to celebrate the launch of her debut novel, Church of Marvels, on May 6th at 7pm.
Leslie Parry is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Her stories have appeared in The Virginia Quarterly Review, The Missouri Review, The Cincinnati Review and The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories, among other publications. She was recently a resident at Yaddo and The Kerouac House. Her writing has also received a National Magazine Award nomination and an honorable mention in The Best American Short Stories 2013. She lives in Chicago.
“This quite literally marvelous novel takes you on a hallucinatory ride through old New York, until the four threads of its protagonists’ lives tangle and tighten like a noose. Irresistible.”
— Emma Donoghue, author of ROOM
