“Hit Your Brights is a well-crafted collection focusing on Oklahoma and southern characters in a universe full of questions. Here are stories of husbands and wives, musicians, addicts, people whose lives are filled with tragedies that make us feel as if they are our own. Constance Squires writes prose with startling precision and beauty. At times humorous, at times sad, her stories are always profoundly moving.”– Brandon Hobson, author of Where the Dead Sit Talking
Constance Squires is returning to Tulsa for her new collection of stories, Hit Your Brights. Constance is a past winner of the Oklahoma Book Award for her debut novel, Along the Watchtower and was again a finalist for the Oklahoma Book Award for her novel, Live from Medicine Park. She has a PhD. in English from Oklahoma State University and teaches creative writing at The University of Central Oklahoma.
Hit Your Brights captures people in tough spots, often of their own making. Fusing humor and tragedy, these thirteen gritty stories keep readers in suspense. Danger lurks, the needle skips, the bomb goes off, and the empties pile up. Outcomes are unpredictable, but the car always starts, and, sometimes, love wins.
This event is free and open to the public. Copies of Hit Your Brights will be available for sale staring January 31.
