Critically acclaimed author Marisa Silver reads from and discusses her new novel Mary Coin. In 1936, in the midst of the Great Depression, photographer Dorothea Lange took a photograph for the Federal Resettlement Program that would become the most iconic image of that unforgettable time in American history. Her subject was Florence Owens Thompson, a thirty-two-year-old Native American and mother of seven, whose arresting face became the defining symbol of American poverty. Mary Coin is a novel inspired by that photograph.

($26.95) Blue Rider Press ISBN # 9780399160707. You can visit Marisa Silver‘s official web site as well.
