Adult Book Discussion
Join us at the Ostrander Branch Library to discuss Bad Dirt: Wyoming Stories 2 by Annie Proulx. The stories in Annie Proulx's new collection are peopled by characters who struggle with circumstances beyond their control in a kind of rural noir half-light. Trouble comes at them from unexpected angles, and they will themselves through it, hardheaded and resourceful. Bound by the land and by custom, they inhabit worlds that are often isolated, dangerous, and in Proulx's bold prose, stunningly vivid. Above all, these stories are about the compelling lives of rapidly disappearing rural Americans.
