These novels tell the stories of three family tragedies obscured by regrets, lies, and denial, and the children left behind who are now looking for answers. But what happens when family secrets and buried truths are unearthed? Authors Chanelle Benz (The Gone Dead), Susan Bernhard (Winter Loon), and Chia-Chia Lin (The Unpassing) explore how private tragedies reverberate through small-town communities—the Mississippi Delta, small-town Minnesota, and the outskirts of Anchorage, Alaska—and how those communities try to protect or exploit the secrets of the past. Moderated by Meakin Armstrong, Guernica.
