Six Bridges Book Festival: Elizabeth McKenzie & Glenn Taylor
In Elizabeth McKenzie’s slyly humorous novel The Dog of the North, Penny Rush has problems. But she is a virtuoso at what’s possible when all else fails. In Penny’s quest for a fresh start, there will be a road trip in the Dog of the North, an old van with gingham curtains, a piñata, and stiff brakes. There will be questions: Why is a detective investigating her grandmother, and what is “the scintillator”? And can Penny recognize a good thing when it finally comes her way?
A novel set in West Virginia, Glenn Taylor’s The Songs of Betty Baach follows the lives of the Baaches of Keystone and the Knoxes of Mosestown as they twist and connect in a tale of survival and retribution that crosses three centuries.
Special guest moderator Jay Jennings, editor of Charles Portis: Collected Works.
