Keith Lesmeister
July 1, noon to 2:00

Keith Lesmeister will be reading from We Could’ve Been Happy Here, followed by a signing. In this collection of short fiction, he plows out a distinctive vision of the contemporary Midwest. These stories peer into the lives of those at the margins-the broken, the resigned, the misunderstood. Hopeful and humorous, tender and tragic, these stories illuminate how we are shaped and buoyed by our intimate connections. Keith will be coming from Iowa for the event—help us welcome him!
