Sarah Fawn Montgomery presents Halfway from Home
In conversation with James Tate Hill
When she left a chaotic home at eighteen, author Sarah Fawn Montgomery chased restlessness, claiming places on the West Coast, Midwest, and East Coast, while determined never to settle. Now her family is ravaged by addiction, illness, and poverty; the country is increasingly divided; and the natural worlds in which she seeks solace are under siege by wildfire, tornadoes, and unrelenting storms. In her new book Halfway from Home, Montgomery turns to nostalgia as a way to grieve a rapidly-changing world, excavating the stories and scars we bury and unearthing literal and metaphorical childhood time capsules and treasures. Montgomery joins us virtually with James Tate Hill for a conversation exploring writing disability and ways to discover hope and healing amidst emotional and environmental collapse.
