Emily Shepard lives in an igloo made of trash bags filled with frozen leaves. As a teenage runaway, she fled to Burlington after a meltdown in a Northeast Kingdom nuclear power plant — possibly caused by her father — killed both parents. Orphaned, homeless and haunted by her past, the narrator of Chris Bohjalian’s latest novel Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands crafts a new identify in the face of an uncertain future. Kicking off his Rock and Roll Book Tour, the best-selling author joins fellow wordsmith Stephen Kiernan for an onstage interview. Lit lovers, take note: Attendees have the chance to win a character named after them in Bohjalian’s next novel.
