A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash is the book for the 16th annual Spokane Is Reading community read.
This event is free and open to the public.
A Land More Kind Than Home, a New York Times Best Seller, is a tale of courage in the face of cruelty and about the power of love to overcome the darkness that lives in us all. The New York Times says Wiley Cash’s debut is a “mesmerizing first novel” and an “intensely felt and beautifully told story.” The Cleveland Plain Dealer remarked “Evocative and quietly chilling, this novel of trust misplaced and love gone wrong is reason to hope for more from Wiley Cash.”
