Book Launch: Never Coming Back by Alison McGhee
Open Book, Target Performance Hall
1011 Washington Ave. S
Join us in the Target Performance Hall for the launch of Alison McGhee's NEVER COMING BACK, the story of a young woman's return to her small-town Adirondacks home to care for her mother--just as secrets from her past begin to surface.
This is the first book for adults that four-time Minnesota Book Award-winner McGhee has published in over ten years, and we are delighted to have her here in Minneapolis for a reading, signing, and celebration of her latest work. Kirkus calls it "a luminous novel," and Julie Schumacher says "Never Coming Back is an exquisite book, brim-full with nostalgia, love, regret, humor, yearning–and unforgettable prose."
ALISON MCGHEE writes for all ages in all forms, from novels to poems to books for children. Her work has been translated into more than twenty languages, and she has won many fellowships and awards, including four Minnesota Book Awards and several American Library Association awards. Alison has three grown children and lives a semi-nomadic life in Minneapolis, Vermont and California.
