An Evening with Jonathan Evison


It's always a treat to spend an evening with Jonathan Evison. His fiction is smart, generous, and so heart-felt. And, man, can this guy write! We're thrilled to be welcome Jonathan Evison back to Rakestraw Books on Friday, 20 April 2018 at 7 PM as we celebrate the publication of his terrific new novel, Lawn Boy. Bestselling novelist Kristin Hannah (The Nightingale) had this to say about Lawn Boy, "Jonathan Evison's voice is pure magic. In Lawn Boy, at once a vibrant coming-of-age novel and a sharp social commentary on class, Evison offers a painfully honest portrait of one young man's struggle to overcome the hand he's been dealt in life and reach for his dreams. It's a journey you won't want to miss, with an ending you won't forget.
