Bruce Holbert in Conversation With Lance Weller


We are so pleased to welcome Bruce Holbert in support of his new novel, Whiskey, on Tuesday March 20 at 7:00 PM. Holbert will be joined in conversation by Lance Weller, author of The Wilderness. Whiskey is the story of two brothers, their parents, and three wrecked marriages, a searching book about family life at its most distressed--about kinship, failure, enough liquor to get through it all, and ultimately a dark and hard-earned grace. With the gruff humor of Cormac McCarthy and a dash of the madcap irony of Charles Portis, and a strong, authentic literary voice all his own, Bruce Holbert traverses the harsh landscape of America's northwestern border and finds a family unlike any you've met before.
