Native Iowan John Shors returns to Des Moines on tour for his fifth novel, Cross Currents, the story of a trio of Americans and a local family on an island in Thailand whose personal dramas play out against the tsunami of 2004. This award-winning author spent many years traveling across the globe, traveling in Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, Africa, and North America.
Shors has received multiple awards for his four other novels, Beneath a Marble Sky, Beside a Burning Sea, Dragon House, and The Wishing Trees which have been translated into twenty-five languages. Now a full-time novelist, John spends his days writing and going on family outings with his wife, Allison, and their two young children.
Cross Currents isn’t out yet, but check back with DMPL in the future and place your reserve!
