David Coster in conversation with Ralph Savarese

Event date: 
Thursday, May 2, 2024 - 7:00pm

David Coster will read from Even So: Stories from an Overpopulated Farmhouse,  published by Ice Cube Press.  He will be joined in conversation by Ralph Savarese. Even So is a rich, loving, and irreverent description of a chaotic and resilient family: both a snapshot of a quickly receding past and a celebration of a family that both splinters and regenerates over time. This is a dazzling, spellbinding book, as heart-wrenching as it is uplifting and whimsical. A must-read.”—Douglas Trevor
