Join us for a book reading tonight!

Join us at 6:30 p.m. tonight at the Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge, MA, to hear Michelle Hoover read from her debut novel, The Quickening. Michelle will generously donate $1 from each book sold to Farm Aid. As the granddaughter of four farm families, Michelle thought Farm Aid was the perfect fit to partner with to launch her first book.

The Quickening tells the story of two farm families trying to save their farm during the Depression. As the back cover tells it, “…Michelle Hoover explores the polarization of the human soul in times of hardship and the instinctual drive for self-preservation by whatever means necessary. The Quickening stands as a novel of lyrical precision and historical consequences, reflecting the resilience and sacrifices required even now in our modern troubled times.”

To read more about The Quickening, check out this review in today’s Boston Globe.

Michele will be traveling across the country this summer on a book tour. Check here to see if she’s coming to a town near you.
