Reader Meet Writer: Pale by Edward Farmer (Virtual Event)
May 27 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us on Wednesday, May 27th at 3 p.m. for an engaging discussion with Edward Farmer, author of the new novel, Pale. Farmer is a native of Memphis, Tennessee, where he journaled and cultivated stories his entire childhood. He is a graduate of Amherst College with a degree in English and psychology, and recipient of the MacArthur-Leithauser Travel Award for creative writing. He currently lives and writes in Pasadena, California.
PALE: The summer of 1966 burned hot across America, but nowhere hotter than the cotton fields of Mississippi. Finding herself in a precarious position, a black woman accepts her brother’s invitation to join him as a servant for a white family where she enters a web of hostility and deception. With a dazzling new voice of emotional tension, Pale explores how quickly humanity can fade and return us to our primal ways.
