Description

Take a break from your holiday shopping, as Des Moines native Peter Bognanni returns to share and sign his new young adult book, Things I’m Seeing Without You. He will be at Beaverdale Books on Friday, November 24 at 6:30 PM. Fans of Thirteen Reasons Why and All the Bright Places will laugh and cry as they read this heartbreaking and life-affirming novel about love after a most profound loss.

Bognanni nails the messiness of grief…The book will satisfy readers of realistic fiction with its dark humor, optimistic outcome, and thoughtful exploration of grief and family dynamics. –School Library Journal

Peter Bognanni grew up in Beaverdale and is a former student of the Iowa Writers' Workshop. His first novel, The House of Tomorrow won the L.A. Times Book Award for First Fiction, The Emerging Author Prize at the Iowa Author Awards, and an American Library Association Alex Award. He currently teaches creative writing at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota. His short fiction, essays, and humor pieces have appeared in the New York Times Book Blog, The Huffington Post, and others. He is also an occasional screenwriter and was awarded a Film Independent Screenwriting Fellowship in 2013.
