For July 2021 we’ve been reading The Leave-Takers, a thriller from local author Steven Wingate, which tells the story of Jacob and Laynie whose relationship blew apart but fate pulled them back together in a windblown, isolated house on the plains of South Dakota.
This interview was broadcast on KGNU on July 22 at 9am.
Listen to more of Wingate’s interview in our podcast-only edition Afterhours at the Radio Bookclub, where he talks about the impact of losing a parent at a young age on his writing and parenting.Subscribe to our Radio Book Club Series on iTunes to get new editions and web-only content.
