Donald Ray Pollock 

When: Mon., Aug. 7, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: free admission
Donald Ray Pollock first made a splash with his debut collection of linked stories, Knockemstiff, which chronicled the dark and weird strivers who populate the grimmer corners of the Midwest. His new novel The Heavenly Table is about two families in 1917 America. One is headed by tough borderlands farmer Pearl Jewett. When he is suddenly dispossessed of his land, his three sons are of a mind to get even through criminal means. The Fiddler family lose everything to a con artist, and at their lowest point sort of crash into the Jewetts, who are on the run and well on their way to criminal immortality. Pollock reads from and signs copies of the heavily praised The Heavenly Table at 7 p.m. tonight at St. Louis County Library Headquarters (1640 South Lindbergh Boulevard, Frontenac; Admission is free, and copies of Pollack's novels will be sold on-site by Subterranean Books.
