Radio Bookclub: Go As A River

The April selection for the Radio Bookclub is Go As A River, by Colorado author Shelley Read.

This novel introduces readers to Victoria Nash who is just a teenager in the 1940s, but she runs the household on her family’s peach farm in the ranch town of Iola, Colorado.

She is the sole surviving female in a family of troubled men.

Her life changes forever when she meets Wilson Moon, a young drifter, displaced from his tribal land in the Four Corners region.

Victoria must navigate love and loss while her home town drowns under the rising waters of the Gunnison River.

This edition of the Radio Bookclub was recorded live at the Boulder Bookstore on March 9, 2023.

This episode was broadcast on KGNU on Thursday, April 27 at 9 am.
