Byrn Greenwood will discuss All the Ugly and Wonderful Things

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Bryn Greenwood will Present her Debut Hardcover Novel All the Ugly and Wonderful Things.  This is a Complimentary OPEN House Event.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Bryn Greenwood is a fourth-generation Kansan, and the daughter of a mostly reformed drug dealer.  She earned an MA from Kansas State University and continues to work in academia as an administrator.  Her Essays and Short Fiction have appeared in The New York Times, Chiron Review, Kansas Quarterly, Karamu, and The Battered Suitcase.  She lives in Lawrence, Kansas.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  A beautiful and provocative love story between two unlikely people and the hard-won relationship that elevates them above the Midwestern meth lab backdrop of their lives.  As the daughter of a drug dealer, Wavy knows not to trust people, not even her own parents.  It's safer to keep her mouth shut and stay out of sight.  Struggling to raise her little brother, Donal, eight-year-old Wavy is the only responsible adult around.  Obsessed with the constellations, she finds peace in the starry night sky above the fields behind her house, until one night her star gazing causes an accident.  After witnessing his motorcycle wreck, she forms an unusual friendship with one of her father's thugs, Kellen, a tattooed ex-con with a heart of gold.  By the time Wavy is a teenager, her relationship with Kellen is the only tender thing in a brutal world of addicts and debauchery.  When tragedy rips Wavy's family apart, a well-meaning aunt steps in, and what is beautiful to Wavy looks ugly under the scrutiny of the outside world.
