Amy Weldon @ Dragonfly Books: ELDORADO, IOWA
Dragonfly Books welcomes Luther College professor of English Amy Weldon for an author talk featuring her debut novel, Eldorado, Iowa. Weldon will talk about writing her book and sign books on Monday, September 9 at 7:00 p.m. at Dragonfly Books.
Weldon’s novel features a young physician’s wife, Sarah Archer, who in 1875 is settling into a new life on the Iowa frontier while expecting her first child. A survivor of the Civil War, she wrestles with troubling memories of her childhood on her family’s Alabama plantation, including her father’s suicide, her brother’s death, and the deprivations and dangers of war. Exploring the ties of love, anger, silence, and misunderstanding between women, the novel asks: how do we grow through and beyond what we think we know of our pasts in order to discover our true homes, our true lives, and our true paths into the future?
