Virtual Book Club: Creatures by Crissy Van Meter
Wednesday May 27 | 5:00PM - 6:00PM
"Van Meter's debut is an unwavering triumph. Equally dazzling is the novel's emotional ballast: Evie's relationship with her father, who is such an inexorable feature of the island he tethers her to it with him. 'When your father tells you that your heart is the size of a blue whale's,' Evie considers, 'everything can kill you, is what he's saying... he's telling you he hopes you'll be wild enough to love things you cannot see.' For all the novel's visual description, then, it's Van Meter's perceptive eye for this—the unseen—that makes for a coming-of-age that's as human as it is wild."
