About this Event
Melinda Moustakis was born in Alaska, grew up in California and now lives in Colorado. Her first book, a story collection titled Bear Down, Bear North, won the Flannery O’Connor Award and the National Book Foundation’s 5 Under 35 Prize. Her second book, Homestead, has won her comparisons to Alice Munro, Marilynne Robinson, and Annie Proulx. The novel was inspired by the story of Ms. Moustakis’ grandparents who met in Alaska, married impulsively, then spent their early days together living in a school bus on a remote parcel of land they hoped eventually to prove up on.
