At 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 29, Angela Palm will read from and discuss her new book, Riverine: A Memoir from Anywhere but Here. Riverine is a mesmerizing account of Palm’s childhood in rural Indiana on the banks of the Kankakee River, which flooded each year due to a man-made alteration of its course. The memoir is an Indie Next selection and winner of the 2014 Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize. Palm was awarded the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference Axinn Foundation Fellowship in Narrative Nonfiction. Her work has been published in Ecotone, At Length Magazine, Brevity, Paper Darts, Essay Daily, and elsewhere. She lives in Vermont, where she works as a developmental editor and teaches creative writing at Champlain College and the New England Young Writers’ Conference.
The reading will take place in the Lilly Auditorium, IUPUI University Library UL 0130. Attendees are encouraged to register for free tickets, as seating will be limited.
Support for the Reiberg Reading Series is provided by the Reiberg family, the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI, the IUPUI University Library, the IUPUI Office of Academic Affairs, and the IUPUI Division of Undergraduate Education.
