J. F. RIORDAN- author of Reflections of a Life in Exile and North of the Tension Line
Thursday, June 20  7:00p.m.
Books & Company  1039 Summit Ave, Oconomowoc

 

Known for the North of the Tension Line novels, Riordan will be visiting Books & Company for her new collection of essays, Reflections of a Life in Exile.

Written in lyrical prose, Reflections on a Life in Exile captures and magnifies the passing beauty of the ordinary and the extraordinary that lingers near the surface of daily life. Although not about dogs, the book is permeated with dog stories, a love of nature, and an almost mystical sense of wonder. J. F.

About the Author: J.F. Riordan grew up in Wisconsin. Although her early career took her to Europe, she returned to the Midwest by choice. She lives there because she loves the culture of humility, hard work, and decency. All of her books are an expression of that love, but this one is, perhaps, the most personal. Ms. Riordan has written three award-winning novels in the North of the Tension Line series thus far, all set on Washington Island, Wisconsin: North of the Tension Line, The Audacity of Goats, and Robert’s Rules. The fourth book in the series, A Small Earnest Question, is due out in May 2020.
