“The war in Iraq empties the small town of Tumalo, Oregon, of men—of fathers—leaving their sons to fight among themselves. But the boys’ bravado fades at home when, alone, they check e-mail again and again for word from their fathers at the front.
Often from fractured homes and communities, the young men in these breathless stories do the unthinkable to prove to themselves—to everyone—that they are strong enough to face the heartbreak in this world. Set in rural Oregon with the shadow of the Cascade Mountains hanging over them, these stories bring you face-to-face with a mad bear, a house with a basement that opens up into a cave, a nuclear meltdown that renders the Pacific Northwest into a contemporary Wild West. Refresh, Refresh by Benjamin Percy is a bold, fiery, and unforgettable collection that deals with vital issues of our time.”
A wonderful collection of short stories that explores different points of view, emotions, and experiences, with a similar sense of longing that doesn’t deflate you, “Refresh, Refresh” is the perfect pick for our November meeting, on November 16th at 6:00pm in our historic chapel.
Anybody who attends will get a free tour of our building, as well as a sneak peak at our museum to be displayed on the Victorian Christmas in Williamsport
