Iowa City native and bestselling author of Descent, Tim Johnston will read from The Current, which has been a New York Times, USA Today, and Indie national bestseller. "I would have taken a break long before 2:00 a.m. last night were it not for Johnston's masterly ability to rummage inside the heads of his various characters, revealing the frayed fabric of small-town life in the process and showing us the stand-up grit of a handful of women and men . . . We need a little hyperbole if we're going to adequately describe how much we love a Tim Johnston novel." — Bill Ott, Booklist
