In support of his debut novel Sweetgirl, Michigan native Travis Mulhauser will visit Literati Bookstore. The story introduces Percy James, a teenaged girl living in Northern Michigan, whose addict mother has gone missing. As a massive blizzard bears down on fictional Cutler County, her quest to find her mother leads her to a discarded infant and a ferocious ex-con, James discovers the truth behind the sleepy community she thought she knew so well. A story about at-risk teens and the strength and courage it takes to move forward, Mulhauser has drawn praise for capturing the teenaged voice of the narrator and for his stark portrayal
of small-town America.
