SNL alum and writing faculty member Rita Leganski recently announced that her novel, The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow, has just been accepted by Harper Collins. Publication date is forthcoming.
The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow weaves a tale of heartbreaking loss, perceived guilt, and atonement gone terribly wrong. And then there comes a healing, brought about by a silent and gifted little boy who shares his name with a mystic-turned-saint. Set against the background of New Orleans and the fictional town of Bayou Cymbaline from the 1920s to the 1950s, the story is rich with the character of a culture that is full to overflowing with conjured charms and sanctified spirits.
