Connections: Rochester Reads 2017 - The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

Rochester Reads is Writers & Books annual event, choosing one title for the community to read together. They've selected The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld, a book about a death row in an ancient stone prison. Through the eyes of an inmate who finds escape in books and in re-imagining the life around him is woven a fantastical tale of the people he observes and the world he inhabits.

We talk to Denfeld about the book, and the upcoming events surrounding her visit. Our guests:

  • Rene Denfeld, author of The Enchanted
  • Kyle Semmel, executive director of Writers & Books
  • Karen vanMeenen, director of special projects at Writers & Books
