Author and lecturer of "For the May Queen" to speak
Kate Evans, a lecturer at San Jose State University, will be reading from her new novel “For the May Queen” twice in November and twice in February. Her first local reading is 7:30 p.m. tomorrow night at an author’s open mic at the Barnes & Noble Almaden Plaza, San Jose.
Reviews of the novel:
“Can a novel about college freshman be a page turner? In Kate Evans’ capable hands, you bet! … Evans hooks the reader from the first paragraph with this story of love and friendship among compelling characters who grapple with the essential question we all have to face: Who are you?” –Patricia Valdata, author of “The Other Sister”
“Evans skillfully reminds us all of what it means to be young, questioning, and prone to get a lot wrong on our way toward an adulthood where we know ourselves–and those around us— just a little better.” –Jayne Pupek, author of “Tomato Girl”
