Book Launch: Rye Curtis presents Kingdomtide
In conversation with James Hannaham
The lives of two women—Cloris Waldrip, the sole survivor of an airplane crash, and Debby Lewis, the troubled park ranger who leads the rescue mission—intersect in this gripping novel of tough-minded resilience from debut novelist Rye Curtis. As Cloris wanders mountain forests and valleys, subsisting on whatever she can find, her hold on life ever more precarious, Ranger Lewis and her motley group of oddball rescuers follow the trail of clues she's left behind. In powerful, exquisite prose, Curtis delivers an inspiring account of two unforgettable characters whose heroism reminds us that survival is only the beginning. Joining Curtis in conversation is Greenlight neighbor James Hannaham, the award-winning author of God Says No and Delicious Foods.
