Kent Meyers, writer in residence and associate professor of humanities at Black Hills State University, recently presented a book reading and signing on campus. His latest novel Twisted Tree is receiving national attention. The book was recently reviewed in People magazine (which gave it 3 ½ stars out of a possible of 4), the Washington Post and many other national and regional publications.

In the latest edition of People magazine the reviewer writes, “Opening this beautifully lyrical novel with one of the tensest, most harrowing first chapters in recent memory, Meyers grabs the reader and never lets go. Meyers then tells intimate stories of those connected to Hayley Jo in the tiny, desolate town of Twisted Tree. … Once you enter Twisted Tree, you’ll be spellbound.”

In addition to the BHSU reception, Meyers will also be making several public appearances this fall, including participation in a symposium at Notre Dame College in Baltimore, Md., and presentations in his home state of Minnesota in Duluth, Little Falls, St. Paul, Excelsior, and Winona Nov. 19-22.

The reading, reception, and book signing, was hosted by the BHSU Humanities Department.
