Megan Carnes

March 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Iowa Writers’ Workshop alum Megan Carnes will read from her new novel, The Celdan Heresies. “This is an extraordinary, well, epic I think I’d call it. I’m in awe of Megan Carnes’s imagination. I love how, as I read, I kept thinking about authors like Milton, Thomas Mann, Dante, and also my favorite theologians. I love the milieu of it all.” -Paul Harding

“Megan Carnes has written a work of startling imagination. Here is a world, both strange and deadly, that feels at once feudal and extremely current. Along the way, Carnes acquaints us with heretics, horse smugglers, poisoners, and church thieves. These medieval people are criminals. They are also wonderful company. Grab this book now. You won’t put it down.”- Annie Dillard

Megan Carnes is a graduate of Oberlin College and the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop. She has taught writing, life skills, and humanities at Davenport University. With her husband and three cats, she lives in Iowa City, Iowa. The Celdan Heresies is her first novel, and the first book in The Reaching Man Series.
