Join us for a reading and booksigning with author Sam Silvas! In his inspired debut collection, Stanton, California, the author examines the claustrophobia that comes from growing up in a small town, and the enigmatic search for happiness inside and outside of it. Whether a man settles for life in Stanton (set in our own Sacramento Delta) or attempts to escape it, the choice is fraught with unforeseen consequences as the outside world butts up against the ways of his hometown.
Originally from Lincoln, Sam Silvas received his MFA from St. Mary's College and lives in Claremont, California with his family. In life and in writing, he strives to be deceptively honest.
