SARAH NICOLE LEMON presents VALLEY GIRLS and WILL WALTON presents I FELT A FUNERAL, IN MY BRAIN After screwing up on her first day in Yosemite National Park to live with her park ranger sister, 17-year-old Rilla is determined to create a stable new home for herself. But Rilla can't help but be seduced by experiences she couldn't have imagined back home. She sets her sights on climbing El Capitan, one of the most challenging routes in Yosemite, and her summer becomes one harrowing and ecstatic experience after another: first climb, first fall two thousand feet in the air, first love. But becoming the person Rilla feels she was meant to be jeopardizes the reasons why she came to Yosemite--a bright new future and a second chance at sisterhood. When her family and her future are at odds, what will Rilla choose? For most of his young life Avery has dealt with his alcoholic mother with the help of his grandfather Pal--he immerses himself in poetry and popular music, and now that high school is over for the summer, he makes out with his best friend Luca (who understands about alcoholic mothers), but the death of his grandfather creates a hole in his life that he can not seem to crawl out of. How do you deal with a hole in your life? Do you turn to poets and pop songs? Do you dream? Do you try on love just to see how it fits? Do you grieve? If you're Avery, you do all of these things. And you write it all down in an attempt to understand what's happened--and is happening--to you. I Felt a Funeral, In My Brain is an astonishing novel about navigating death and navigating life, at a time when the only map you have is the one you can draw for yourself. Event date: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 - 6:00pm Event address: 55 Haywood Street Asheville, NC 28801
