Upcoming Event
Friday, June 2, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Heiny’s debut novel is a witty and utterly realistic exploration of marriage, parenting, and the ever-changing dynamics of family life. Graham has been married to Audra for twelve years, but feels he can barely keep up with her. Vivacious and outgoing where Graham is quiet and introspective, Audra lets nothing stand in her way. But as the couple struggle to raise a child with Asperger’s, they turn for help to Graham’s first wife, Elspeth. The antithesis of Audra, Elspeth both is and is not part of the family, and her presence in Graham’s life leads him to reconsider his past and his future. Meanwhile, Audra’s charm and energy infuse every page. Author of the acclaimed collection of stories, Single, Carefree, Mellow, Heiny is as funny as she is perceptive.
