Brandon Hobson, Author of "Where the Dead Sit Talking," to Appear at a Reading and Signing in Tulsa

Feb 21, 2018

Our guest is the writer and writing teacher Brandon Hobson, whose new novel, "Where the Dead Sit Talking," has just been published. Set in rural Oklahoma during the late 1980s, it's a spare, lyrical, and at times troubling story about a fifteen-year-old Cherokee boy who's been placed in foster care. As was noted of this book in a starred Publishers Weekly review: "Hobson's narrative control is stunning.... Far more than a mere coming-of-age story, this is a remarkable and moving novel." Please note that Hobson will be doing a reading and signing in connection with this book on Friday night, the 23rd, at Magic City Books in downtown Tulsa. (More info is posted here; this event was originally planned for earlier in the week, but it has now been re-scheduled for Friday the 23rd.)
