Live From Prairie Lights: Deborah E. Kennedy
Writers’ Workshop graduate Deborah Kennedy will read from her new novel, Tornado Weather.
Charles Baxter says, “Deborah E. Kennedy's Tornado Weather has a very distinctive energy, and there is real pathos along with subtle humor. The characters are from a social class that is too often overlooked and misrepresented. Kennedy gives them their due, with all their resourcefulness, resilience, and suffering intact."
Deborah E. Kennedy is a native of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Kennedy has worked as both a reporter and editor, and also holds a second Master's in Fiction Writing and English Literature from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
