Charis Books and More/Charis Circle says
Nina Revoyr stole our hearts and captured our minds when she came roaring out of nowhere in 1997 with her instantly classic tale of young lesbian love and basketball, The Necessary Hunger. Since then she has written consistently complicated and insistently human stories of families and neighborhoods, of the bonds that connect us and threaten to tear us apart. Her newest novel Lost Canyon is her most thrilling to date, telling the story of Four people on a backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada who find more adventure than they ever imagined. They are drawn to the mountains for reasons as diverse as their own lives. Gwen Foster, a counselor for at-risk youth, is struggling with burnout from the demands of her job and mourning the loss of one of her teens. Real estate agent Oscar Barajas is adjusting to the fall of the housing market and to being a single parent. Todd Harris, an attorney, is stuck in a lucrative but unfulfilling career—and in a failing marriage. They are all brought together by their trainer, Tracy Cole, a former athlete with a taste for risky pursuits. Moving effortlessly between city and wilderness, Lost Canyon explores the ways that race, class, and culture shape experience and perception. It examines the choices good people must face in desperate situations. It depicts the power and beauty of the natural world. Set in the grand, wild landscape of the California mountains, Lost Canyon is a story of brewing social tensions and breathtaking adventure that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

You won't want to miss this special evening with the author the Los Angeles Review of Books calls "One of the city's greatest storytellers."
