Join us as Andrea Jarrell reads from her debut memoir, I’m the One Who Got Away, and Melissa Scholes Young  reads from her debut novel, Flood, winner of the Best Book Award in Literary Fiction.

About I’m the One Who Got Away:

From a Starred Kirkus Review: “. . . reminiscent of Joyce Carol Oates. The work’s lasting message is that love, like Jarrell’s prose, is both painful and beautiful. A stunning series of recollections with a feminist slant.”

About Flood

Now she’s returned unannounced, and her family and friends don’t know what to make of it. She says she’s just home for a brief visit and her high-school reunion, but she’s carrying too much luggage for that: literal and metaphorical.
