Louise Erdrich meets Karen Russell in, When Two Feathers Fell from the Sky, a deliciously strange and daringly original novel from Pulitzer Prize finalist Margaret Verble. Set in 1926 Nashville, the book follows a death-defying young Cherokee horse-diver who, with her companions from the Glendale Park Zoo, must get to the bottom of a mystery that spans centuries.
Verble is an enrolled citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. Her first novel, Maud's Line, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and her second novel, Cherokee America, was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
The event will be available to stream through November 8.
