April 6 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

AUTHORS ROBERT GIPE AND MICHAEL HENSON

Robert Gipe, author of Weedeater: An Illustrated Novel AND Cincinnatian Michael Henson, author of Maggie Boylan: A Novel read from and discuss their respective new releases. Weedeater is the follow-up to Gipe’s acclaimed debut, Trampoline: An Illustrated Novel, which was called “a new American masterpiece.” Henson’s Maggie Boylan is a poignant exploration of the opioid crisis, described in one review as “easily the best fictional account of the widespread meth and Oxy wreckage in Appalachia since Daniel Woodrell’s Winter’s Bone.”
