Susan Cushman
to read from and sign copies of her novel,
Cherry Bomb
(Dogwood Press, $24.95 hardcover)


“In Cherry Bomb, a troubled young artist finds a way to heal a horrific past in the intriguing world of street art, graffiti, iconography, and abstract expressionism. With deft narrative control, Susan Cushman weaves an unforgettable story of triumph and redemption that will linger long after the final page is turned. An impressive debut by a rising star in southern literary circles!”

     Cassandra King, author of The Sunday Wife
