by Samuel D. Hunter
A Studio Retreat Reading
In rural Idaho near an abandoned mine with a history of fatal accidents sits Maggie's small mining museum in its final days of being open to the public. When a man and his granddaughter arrive at the museum for a tour, long-buried hope and shame from both Maggie's personal past and the history of this recently--and controversially--unincorporated town are resurrected.
This reading will run approximately 3 hours, with two 10-minute intermissions.
