Julia Franks, author of Over the Plain Houses

An exceptional debut, Over the Plain Tall Houses (Hub City Press) is the story of a woman intrigued by the possibility of change and escape—stalked by a Bible-haunted man who fears his government and stakes his integrity upon an older way of life. As Brodis chases his demons, he brings about a final act of violence that shakes the en-tire valley. Over the Plain Houses bares the myths and mysteries that modernity can’t quite dispel. Join us for an evening with this delightful writer.
