Left Bank Books welcomes award-winning author Lucy Jane Bledsoe, who will sign and discuss her new novel, The Evolution of Love!
A devastating earthquake has just hit the San Francisco Bay Area, cutting off the outside world completely. When Lily decides to fly from Nebraska to California and make the treacherous journey into the Bay Area to find her sister, she knows she's headed for a disaster zone, but nothing prepares her for what she finds. Those who survived and didn’t evacuate are making shelters, running meals programs, rigging their own technologies—and redefining the very meaning of community. A piercing, unforgettable story of hope in the face of crisis, The Evolution of Love asks what it takes for people to come together, what dangers must they fend off in their bid for survival, and what lengths will they go to rebuild home.
"Given our current seemingly endless string of natural disasters, this is a timely story and a compelling one . . . Bledsoe asks us to think about the resilience of love and hate; what our responsibility to each other is; and who we really are, right down to our DNA. Highly recommended." —Karen Joy Fowler, We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves
