This Club Book Podcast features authors Peter Geye and Amy Greene coming together for an evening of conversation about their work and the rich physical landscapes that drive their writing at their April 15th visit to Roseville Library in Ramsey County.
Set against the powerful lakeshore terrain of northern Minnesota, Peter Geye’s second novel, The Lighthouse Road, beautifully explores the hardship and isolation of life in a turn-of-the-century logging town. Geye, a Minnesota native, is also the author of the award-winning novel, Safe from the Sea.
Amy Greene first brought her native Appalachia to life with a spellbinding debut novel, Bloodroot, in 2010. Her highly anticipated second novel, Long Man, explores rural Tennessee in the summer of 1936, as a government-built dam is about to flood an Appalachian town to bring electricity to the area. Long Man was released February, 2014.
