Angela Mitchell signs and discusses “Unnatural Habitats”
Left Bank Books welcomes St. Louis native and UMSL alum Angela Mitchell, who will sign and discuss her debut story collection, “Unnatural Habitats and Other Stories”!
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Unnatural Habitats” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
From a newly divorced woman employed by a front for illegal drugs, to a man who seeks revenge when the farm he loves is invaded by meth producers, to a shady Arkansas businessman wrestling with his own wildness (and that of his teen son) as he attempts to return a domesticated bobcat to its native habitat, the characters in “Unnatural Habitats” explore the conflict between what is instinct and what is learned, as well as what it means to belong to a place and to a people. Set in the rural landscape of the Ozarks of Arkansas and Missouri, the stories turn on a growing crime culture in a place that had previously felt untouched by the world outside.
