Writers’ Workshop graduate Peter Bognanni will read from his new Y/A novel, Things I’m Seeing Without You. "Bognanni nails the messiness of grief . . . The book will satisfy readers of realistic fiction with its dark humor, optimistic outcome, and thoughtful exploration of grief and family dynamics."–School Library Journal

Bognanni’s debut novel, The House of Tomorrow, won the LA Times award for first fiction and the ALA Alex Award and has been adapted into a feature film. He teaches creative writing at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
