Multi-Author Panel on Fiction for Adults
We've got three authors, all traditionally published, ready to share their own works AND recommend other titles as possible Christmas gifts for your friends and family members.
Todd Robert Petersen recently published It Needs to Look Like We Tried with Counterpoint Press. Well known author Richard Russo described Petersen as "crazy-talented, and the wild, weird, hilarious stories of It Needs to Look Like We Tried are just what's called for in these bizarre, frightening times." Besides writing, Petersen teaches English at SUU, as well as in the university's Screen Studies program.
Ingrid Sundberg grew up in Maine, but now lives in sunny California. According to A.M. Jenkins, author of the Printz Honor Book Repossessed, "Ingrid Sundberg has a rare talent for writing heartfelt stories that readers will sink into. Powerful and Poignant, honest and tender, with beautifully textured characters, All We Left Behind is a gem of a book." Ingrid is "passionate about stories that look into the shadows of our vulnerability and challenge us to see the white-hot center of who we are."
