Iowa author Kali White will read from The Monsters We Make. “In The Monsters We Make, Kali White deftly conveys the terror that gripped a community, a city, a state and a nation when several paper carriers were snatched from their routes… With a shivery premise and richly-drawn characters, VanBaale takes a child’s greatest fear and a parent’s worst nightmare and delivers an addictive novel that must be read with the lights on.”—Heather Gudenkauf
