The Idaho Writers Guild (IWG) organizes monthly meet-ups for authors, but this time it’s in Caldwell (hello, Canyon County!) and the locale is the Chop Shop (whose menu makes it impossible to make a choice).
That’s Thursday 11 August 2022 starting at 4:30 p.m. MT.
(Tip: IWG now publishes an Events Calendar that tries to lasso the activities of all Treasure Valley area groups.)
This looks so great. Heathcock has envisioned an American future riven with war and spectacle… (Yes, I’ve ordered my copy.)
Here’s the blurb:
In a future America ravaged by natural disaster, pandemic, and political unrest, a fundamentalist faction emerges. As the Novae Terrae gain power, enticing civilians with bread and circuses, a civil war breaks out between its members and the US government. —- Mazzy Goodwin, a young soldier, only wants to find her little sister, Ava Lynn. One day, she wakes in a bomb crater to find wings emerged from her back. Has she died? Been gifted wings by God? Undergone a military experiment?
Read the accolades on Alan Heathcock’s website then pick up a copy at Rediscovered Books or your favorite local or online book vendor. Not to be missed!
