Description The Midtown Scholar Bookstore will welcome prizewinning journalist Eliza Griswold to Harrisburg to present her new book, "Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America." A book signing will follow her discussion.
In "Amity and Prosperity," prize-winning poet and journalist Griswold tells the story of the energy boom’s impact on a small town at the edge of Appalachia and one woman’s transformation from a struggling single parent to an unlikely activist. Drawing on seven years of immersive reporting, Griswold reveals what happens when an imperiled town faces a crisis of values, and a family wagers everything on an improbable quest for justice.
