Why should you attend?

“Hopes grants us entry into the wondrous, highly charged world of young male friendship once upon a time. The setting is lovely and nostalgic. But there is trouble underneath, and there are things that just cannot happen. A pitch-perfect exploration of the terrors and pleasures of American adolescence.”—David Pratt, author

“Marco Rafalà’s debut novel, How Fires End, avoids Mafia tropes for a moving depiction of multigenerational loss and love, grief and gratitude, heartbreak and hope.”—Kirkus Reviews
