Ruchika Tomar presents A Prayer for Travelers
In conversation with Melissa Rivero

A Prayer for Travelers, the stunning and imaginative debut from Ruchika Tomar paints an arresting and electric portrait of the dangers of girlhood in the American desert west and how small towns try – and often fail – to protect their own. After a terrifying act of violence shatters the world of bookish loner Cale and her charismatic, street-smart friend Penny, Penny vanishes without a trace. Cale sets off on a dangerous quest across the desert to find her friend, working through her trauma and grief along the way. Joining Tomar in conversation is Melissa Rivero, author of The Affairs of the Falcóns.
