Coffee & Conversation: Brian Allen Carr

Thursday, September 19th
11:00 AM

Join us with Brian Allen Carr for a discussion of his latest novel, Opioid, Indiana.

"In Opioid, Indiana, Carr explores what it's like to be a high school kid in the age of Trump--a time of economic inequality, addiction, Confederate flags, and mass shootings... Seventeen-year-old Riggle is living in rural Indiana with his uncle and uncle's girlfriend after the death of his parents. Now his uncle is missing, probably on a drug binge. It's Monday, and $800 in rent is due Friday. Riggle, who's been suspended from school, has to either find his uncle or get the money together himself. His mission exposes him to a motley group of Opioid locals--encounters by turns perplexing, harrowing, and heartening.
... Through the voice of its unforgettable protagonist--charismatic, confused, searching, by turns cynical and naïve, wise and impulsive-- Opioid, Indiana pierces to the heart of our moment." — Publisher Marketing
