Books & Beats: September 12, 2015
In Did You Ever Have a Family (Gallery/Scout Press) by Bill Clegg, a family is devastated by a house fire. June, the only survivor, grieves on the road. Betsy Burton says Clegg “has a raw talent for shining light on the workings of people’s hearts and heads.”
The Mynabirds are coming to town in a few days. Austen Diamond says that front woman Laura Berhenn can craft a good love song without resorting to schmaltzy sentimentality. You can see their show at Kilby Court on Monday, September 14th.
