Join Decorah author Robert Felde for a discussion about his new book, Season for Tomatoes: A Journey Story at Dragonfly Books at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20.
Season for Tomatoes: A Journey Story tells the story of Elaine, a forced early retiree. Prompted by a missing neighbor girl, Elaine embarks on an ill-conceived, risky, and improbable quest-unwrapping layers of her malaise and a search for wholeness.
Tomatoes evokes the restless spirit of the movie Nomadland, while embracing unique characters such as: a runway Amish girl; a divorced salesman whose bedroom anxieties parallel Elaine’s; a babbling hairdresser with razor-sharp insights; a quirky, backwoods preacher with a troubled past; and an auto repair wizard who analyzes an owner’s relationship with their car before opening the hood.
It is a story of relationships, loss, risk taking, and hospitality.
Sponsored by Oneota Valley Literary Foundation in collaboration with Dragonfly Books.
