Laurie Halse Anderson - The Impossible Knife Of Memory

Jan 17, 2014

Laurie as a young adult

High school is hard enough having already known your classmates since grade school, but when you’re thrown back in after years of being home schooled in an 18-wheeler, it’s just a little bit harder to kind your place amongst the freaks & zombies – but for our main character Hayley, in Laurie Halse Anderson’s new novel The Impossible Knife of Memory, it’s even more so.  Hayley is under significantly more pressure and stress because her father is severely suffering from PTSD, and she’s struggling to keep both of their lives together.

Anderson will be at Oblong Books Monday evening January 20th at 6PM in Rhinebeck NY.
