Book Launch: Fracking metaphor informs new novel
Saturday, April 22, 2017
from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM
Local author, Kate Brandes, will discuss her first novel, The Promise of Pierson Orchard, about a Pennsylvania family threatened by betrayal, financial desperation, old flames, fracking, and ultimately finding forgiveness.
Fracking is not so much at the story’s center as it is a metaphor for the splintering lives of the characters, people wrestling with change. Brandes explores a family and community with disparate perspectives about fracking — to delve into the gray spaces so often overlooked these days by people’s inclination to choose sides.Visit the Book Launch: Fracking metaphor informs new novel website
