Author Fran Wilde presents Riverland, her first novel for children on Thursday, April 25 at 7:30 p.m. Aimed at kids ages 10-14, Wilde’s book tells the story of two sisters who create a fantasy world as a way of escaping the reality of domestic violence in their family. In a starred review, Booklist noted: "A narrative that challenges the stereotypical stories of domestic violence, this is painful and heartwarming all at once in its portrayal of two sisters creating their own magic and protecting one another. The latest from award-winning Wilde is a must-read for upper-middle-graders looking not just for a magical quest but also for lyrical writing and a beautiful story, too."
