Claire Boyles Talks SITE FIDELITY

Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome writer, teacher, and local author Claire Boyles to our virtual event space! We'll be celebrating her new short story collection, Site Fidelity on Tuesday, July 20th at 6pm MT. She'll be joined in conversation with Meghan Pipe, the Communications Director of Just Buffalo Literary Center in New York! The event will be streaming to the Old Firehouse Books Facebook page, and is free.

Firmly rooted in the modern American West, Site Fidelity follows women and families who feel the instinctual, inexplicable pull of a home they must work to protect from the effects of economic inequity and climate catastrophe. In lean, lyrical prose, Claire Boyles evokes the bleakness and beauty of our threatened western landscapes. Spanning the decades from the 1970s to a plausible near future, this knockout debut introduces unforgettable characters who must confront the challenges of caregiving and loss alongside the very practical impacts of fracking, water rights law, and other agricultural policies. Site Fidelity is a vivid, intimate, and deeply human exploration of life on the shifting terrain of our changing planet.

Books can be shipped anywhere within the United States (unfortunately, we cannot ship internationally).

Please email events@oldfirehousebooks.com if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you at the event!
