So far, 2015 has been an outstanding year for the Pacific Northwest literary community. We’ve already witnessed several Spokane-based authors’ debuts receiving immensely positive critical and public reception, and author Megan Kruse, who grew up in Tulalip, Wash., isn’t breaking the trend. With an introduction by Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) and kind words from our own Jess Walter on the cover, Kruse’s first novel, Call Me Home, has also received starred reviews. The Seattle-based author heads to Spokane and Moscow next week to talk about and read from the novel, a heart-wrenching tale of a family struck by violence, each seeking redemption, acceptance and love.
