Former Iowa Citian Jacinta Hart Kehoe will read from her memoir, Mountain Lion Rises. “Mountain Lion Rises an intense account of the redemptive nature of the world around us—if we have the patience and compassion to comprehend it. Jacinta Hart Kehoe has this patience and compassion and is able to translate it to the page gracefully in a difficult, honest, and hopeful story that is well worth the read.” —BK Loren
