Abby Geni's debut novel, The Lightkeepers, in which a young nature photographer with the Shakespearean name Miranda travels to an inhospitable
island off the coast of California for a year, has been greeted across the country with fascination and praise. Said Publishers Weekly, it is a "haunting and immersive adventure, set in an unforgettable, wild habitat." The Chicago Tribune praised it as "an accessible page-turner whose surprises, both fictional and stylistic, unfold so satisfyingly that the novel is also a pleasure to read." Join Abby Geni this evening as she reads from her novel and invites your questions, promising an entertaining evening with a young writer destined for great things.
Copies of The Lightkeepers--and of the author's earlier, much praised short story collection,Animal Love--will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
