Three N.M. Authors Combine Forces
Press Release [ Thu Apr 21 2016 12:16 PM ]
Albuquerque authors and friends Lynn C. Miller, Corran Harrington and Bev Magennis join forces at 3pm on Sunday, April 24, to talk about and read from their latest fiction releases.
Miller is promoting her novel of trauma, The Day After Death; Harrington's new novel, set along the Rio Grande, is Follow the River Home; and Magennis contributes the Southwestern gothic Alibi Creek to the multiple-author appearance.
Miller's effort is described as such: "After a minor car accident shatters her equilibrium, forty-three-year-old Amanda Ferguson wakes up to a memory of being terrorized by her older brother Adrian, whom she holds responsible for the death of her twin brother thirty years before. Their mother, Eva, blinded by devotion to her eldest son, has locked the truth inside her now-failing memory. When a client from work invites Amanda to a performance of Harold Pinter's Betrayal, a haunting series of events related to the play resurfaces, including the suicide of Amanda's college lover and mentor, Sarah Moore. As Amanda puts her fractured life back together, the present increasingly echoes her traumatic past, propelling her toward the truth about Duncan's and Sarah's deaths--and toward Adrian."
Harrington's Follow the River Home is teased as such: "Daniel Arroyo has suffered a lifetime of guilt over the sudden death of his infant sister, who died when he was eight years old. He now lives his middle years between that guilt and worsening episodes of PTSD from a Vietnam he left thirty years ago. When a violent encounter on a dusty highway forces Daniel to face what haunts him, he finds himself pulled back to the neighborhood of his youth, where old houses hold tired secrets. What really happened on that steamy August afternoon? The answer comes spilling from the old neighborhood, and Daniel begins to find his way home. Corran Harrington takes the reader along the Rio Grande, from its headwaters to the sea."
And in Magennis' Alibi Creek, charming and wily Walker returns to his family's New Mexico ranch following a two-year prison stint. "There his pious older sister Lee Ann is busy caring for their mother, raising two sons, and grappling with unethical workplace demands. Walker's illegal activities quickly incite chaos in the town and Lee Ann's marriage, leading to drastic transformations of beliefs, identities, and relationships."
Miller, co-director of the ABQ Writers Co-op and co-editor of the literary journal bosque, was a professor at the University of Texas at Austin for 27 years. She is the author of The Fool's Journey: A Romance and Death of a Department Chair; co-editor of Voices Made Flesh: Performing Women's Autobiography; and co-author of Find Your Story, Write Your Memoir. Miller has performed a number of solo performance pieces and plays about Edith Wharton, Gertrude Stein, Katherine Anne Porter, and Victoria Woodhull. She lives in Albuquerque.
Harrington is a Pushcart Prize nominee, a Santa Fe Writers Project finalist, a Hidden River Arts Eludia Award finalist, a Bosque Fiction Contest finalist, and a New Millennium Writings Award semifinalist whose short fiction (written also as Connie Harrington) has appeared in numerous literary journals. A former lawyer, Harrington also has a background in cultural and linguistic anthropology. She lives in Albuquerque.
Magennis was born in Toronto, Ontario, and immigrated to the US in 1964. She received her MA in Art from the Claremont Graduate School in California. After a 35-year career as an artist, she started writing, inspired by the land and people in the New Mexico wilderness where she had lived. In 2009 she was accepted to the Iowa Writers' Workshop Summer Graduate Class, and in 2010 was awarded an eight-month Pen USA Emerging Voices Fellowship. In 2011 she received a Norman Mailer Writers Colony Fiction Fellowship. She lives in Albuquerque.
Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Miller, Harrington and Magennis event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit www.page1book.com.
