Book Launch: Thisbe Nissen presents Our Lady of the Prairie
Wine reception to follow

Thisbe Nissen, author of the award-winning Out of the Girls’ Room and Into the Night, launches Our Lady of the Prairie, a sharp and bitingly funny new novel about a professor whose calm midwestern life gives way to a vortex of crises. During a chaotic wedding on the Iowa prairie – set in the seething political climate of a contentious election – one theater professor grapples with the wreckage of a passionate affair, a menace of a mother-in-law who may or may not have been a Nazi collobrator, and the tragicomic revenge fantasies of her heretofore docile husband. Sexy, smart, and razor-sharp, Our Lady of the Prairie follows a newly liberated woman in her attempts to salvage the pieces, without going to pieces herself. Nissen launches her latest novel at Greenlight, followed by a wine reception to celebrate the book’s launch.
