PJFL Local Writers Panel 2016

The library asked Kevin to participate on a panel of local writers - his short story collection We Were Flying to Chicago came out in 2014 and got great reviews. Erika Swyler, a local novelist who wrote “The Book of Speculation” that came out this year was the main featured author on the panel. Her novel has received national attention and was featured as part of Barnes & Noble’s Discover program, and it was also named one of the best books of 2015 by both and Buzzfeed.
