Pete Fromm - A Job You Mostly Won't Know How to Do
7:00 PM
Rediscovered Books
Spend an evening in conversation" with Pete Fromm and PBS's Marsha Franklin at Rediscovered Books. This event is co-sponsored by the Selway Bitterroot Frank Church Foundation.

Pete Fromm returns with his big-hearted new novel, a love story about family and resiliency and second chances. For young couple Taz and Marnie, their fixer-upper is the symbol of their new life together: a work in progress, the beginning of something grand, all the more so when they learn a baby is on her way. But the blueprint for the perfect life eludes Taz when Marnie dies in childbirth, plummeting the taciturn carpenter headfirst into the new, strange world of fatherhood alone, a landscape of contradictions, of great joy and sorrow. With a supporting cast as rich and compelling as the wild Montana landscape, the novel follows Taz's first two years as a father--a job no one can be fully prepared for.

Pete Fromm is a five-time winner of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Literary Award for his novels If Not For This, As Cool As I Am and How All This Started; the story collection ˆ; and the memoir Indian Creek Chronicles. He is on the faculty of Pacific University's low-residency MFA program, and lives in Montana with his family.

Pete will be signing books afterwards.
