Join APL to celebrate diverse fiction.

Kelli Jo Ford, author of "Crooked Hallelujah", will join us for a Zoom discussion of her debut novel.

This event will be held via Zoom. Instructions to join the Zoom meeting will be emailed the day before the meeting to all registrants.

Book Description:

Crooked Hallelujah tells the stories of Justine—a mixed-blood Cherokee woman— and her daughter, Reney, as they move from Eastern Oklahoma’s Indian Country in the hopes of starting a new, more stable life in Texas amid the oil bust of the 1980s. However, life in Texas isn’t easy, and Reney feels unmoored from her family in Indian Country. Against the vivid backdrop of the Red River, we see their struggle to survive in a world—of unreliable men and near-Biblical natural forces, like wildfires and tornados—intent on stripping away their connections to one another and their very ideas of home.

You don't have to read the book to join, but it is encouraged.

This book talk is presented as part of the Escapism Book Club series.
