Amy Hassinger will read from her novel, After the Dam. “Forces of nature―big water and big love―come together in this unforgettable literary page-turner. Amy Hassinger has woven a tale out of the very earth where the Ojibwe live. Her protagonist―Rachel―is a lover, mother, and activist, a woman of our time on a hero’s journey toward wholeness.” ―Patricia Henley
Hassinger is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop and is the author of two previous novels. She currently teaches in the University of Nebraska's MFA in Writing Program, and for the Iowa Summer Writing Festival.
