Miriam McNamara presents An Impossible Distance to Fall

August 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

It’s 1930, and Birdie William’s life has crashed along with the stock market. Her father’s bank has failed, and worse, he’s disappeared along with his Jenny biplane. When Birdie sees a leaflet for a barnstorming circus with a picture of Dad’s plane on it, she goes to Coney Island in search of answers.

Former Ashevillian Miriam McNamara won the Norma Fox Mazer award for a historical young adult manuscript work-in-progress. An Impossible Distance to Fall is her second novel.
