Dog Ears Books in Northport will host a reception for award-winning local author Donald Lystra. Lystra will read from his new collection of short stories, Something that Feels like Truth, published by Switchgrass Books, an imprint of Northern Illinois University Press.
A resident of both Ann Arbor and Omena, Lystra finds Michigan a natural setting for his stories. His novel, Season of Water and Ice, set in central northern Michigan, garnered both a Michigan Notable Books Award and the Midwest Book Award for Fiction in 2010. Now Booklist, the review arm of the American Library Association, has called Lystra's new book "luminous ... a stellar collection of masterfully crafted gems," while Traverse City author Mardi Link calls Lystra a "precise and merciless writer, a master of that moment when life changes, often irreversibly."
