Join us for an evening with Constance Squires. Constance will be reading from her recent novel, Live from Medicine Park, and will be joined by Robert Dean, Gabino Iglesias, and Tatiana Ryckman.
Live from Medicine Park is an aching, honest, unforgettable story of a fading legend, as well as a vivid portrait of one of the most mystical places in this country. —Adam Davies, author of The Frog King
An ode to both southwestern Oklahoma and rock music, Live from Medicine Park is a bittersweet reflection on the search for identity and purpose amid tragedy. As the novel reaches its climax, Ray sets out on one last adventure to set things right. Redemption may be possible—but only on its own terms.
