In 2008, David Rhodes returned to the literary scene after a thirty-year silence with his acclaimed novel, Driftless. At this year’s thirteenth annual Book Lovers Ball, David will join us to discuss his past work with Milkweed Editions—and preview his new novel, Jewelweed, forthcoming in spring 2013. We’re thrilled to return to Words, Wisconsin with David at the BLB and beyond!
The Book Lovers Ball is hosted by the Milkweed Editions Board of Directors. Special thanks to the Book Lovers Ball co-chairs and committee members:
- Ann Ness, BLB Co-Chair
- Tracey Thayer Breazeale, BLB Co-Chair
