Please join Book Vault in welcoming Grinnell, Iowa debut author Harley McIlrath as he discusses his work in Possum Trot, a Midwest Connections Pick for 2010.

Still, these pieces are neither nostalgic nor sentimental...this Possum Trot, form(s) not a lament, but a celebration of life.
"Harley McIlrath's Possum Trot never plays dead. His stories dance to the true-side of good Midwest living!" -Mary Swander, Iowa Poet Laureate
