David Kranes | The Legend’s Daughter

Saturday, May 11, 4 p.m.

David Kranes, prolific local playwright and author, will read from and sign The Legend’s Daughter, his new collection of stories. These fast-paced stories set in contemporary Idaho explore intricate dynamics between fathers and sons, unlikely friends, people and place.

Terry Tempest Williams, author of When Women Were Birds, calls The Legend’s Daughter "a story collection of real people struggling with identity, with love, with time, rooted in the rugged and indifferent beauty of Idaho where each character finds his or her mirror in water, in stone, in place. David Kranes shows how our tenacious love of life can transform any situation, large or small, into alchemy. We are all living inside these raw and well-drawn pages.”

Kranes 2001 novel, The National Tree, was adapted for television and aired on the Hallmark channel. His short fiction has won literary prizes and has appeared in such magazines as Esquire, Ploughshares, and Transatlantic Review. Over 50 of his plays have been performed in New York and across the U.S., and his radio plays have been performed in the U.S., Canada, and abroad.
