Helen Benedict reads from her new work, Wolf Season as part of our Author Reading series. After a hurricane devastates a small town, the lives of three women and their young children are irrevocably changed. Rin, an Iraq War veteran, tries to protect her blind daughter and the three wolves under her care. Naema, a widowed doctor who fled Iraq with her wounded son, faces life-threatening injuries and confusion about her feelings for Louis, a veteran and widower harboring his own secrets and guilt. Beth, who is raising a troubled son, waits out her marine husband's deployment in Afghanistan, equally afraid of him coming home and of him never returning at all. As they struggle to maintain their humanity and find hope, their war-torn lives collide in a way that will affect their entire community. Benedict is the author of seven novels, including Sand Queen, and five works of nonfiction, including The Lonely Soldier: The Private War of Women Serving in Iraq. This event will take place in the community room, which is wheelchair accessible. Refreshments will be served!
