Eau Claire Author Featured in New York Times Book Review
UW-Eau Claire assistant professor and local author Molly Patterson’s novel, Rebellion, was featured in the New York Times Book Review on Nov. 22. The book, which was published in August, tells the story of four women from different homes and times who are impacted by the 1899 Boxer Rebellion in China. In praising the book, reviewer Jan Stuart wrote that, “Patterson adroitly zigzags in time, threading the women’s journeys with subtle detail and embellishing them with metaphors specific to each character." Patterson, a Pushcart Prize-winning writer, will host a dramatic reading from her novel in The Local Store gallery on Thursday, Dec. 16, at 3pm. She will also be available to answer questions and sign copies of the text.
