Join Dragonfly Books with author Kali VanBaale and her new novel The Good Divide. With stark and swift prose, The Good Divide explores one woman’s tortured inner world, and the painful choices that have divided her life. VanBaale will share her stories and talk about her new book on Thursday, September 22 at 7:00 pm at Dragonfly Books.


In the lush countryside of Wisconsin, Jean Krenshaw is the ideal 1960’s dairy farm wife. She cooks, sews, raises children, and plans an annual July 4th party for friends and neighbors. But when her brother-in-law Tommy marries leery newcomer LIz, Jean is forced to confront a ten-year-old family secret and the unresolved death of a young woman. Vivid and intriguing, The Good Divide (Midwestern Gothic 2016) explores the inner world of desires when faced with the realities of life.
