A Shift in Gravity, by Kathleen McGhee-Anderson
A clash of wills disrupts the friendship between two friends, both writers, (born in the Boomer Generation,) when a young journalist visits them in Martha’s Vineyard and insinuates himself into their lives. K.C. is the daughter of a famous black-listed writer from the McCarthy era. She’s had one major novel and never another. The fear of turning into her father and never writing again haunts her. Her friend and helpmate, Jewel, also boasts a stunning first novel, but she’s buried her literary ambition after subsequent failures and discouragement. The tragic epitaph of literary great, Zora Neale Hurston, hovers over her. Both women have managed to keep their desire for success and recognition in denial. But unexpected literary success tests their relationship and shifts everything in their lives.
My Antonia, by Meg Miroschnik
In this exuberant new adaptation of Willa Cather’s 1918 classic novel, new immigrant Ántonia and orphan Jim Burden strive to make lives for themselves on the Nebraska prairie. Bursting with music, adventure, and emotion, this coming-of-age tale wrestles with the notion of what it means to be an American. My Ántonia asks urgent questions about assimilation, the American experiment, and can we ever tell someone else’s story? that feel as resonant today as they must have a century ago.
