Join author John Fram for a discussion of his book The Bright Lands. John will be in conversation with fellow author Adam Eli. The event will take place on Zoom and be live-streamed on The Strand’s Facebook Page.
The town of Bentley, Texas, holds two things dear: its football, and its secrets.
Friday nights are sacred; the people of Bentley gather in devotion to the vigor of their boys on display under those famous halogen lamps. GO BISON! MY HERD, MY GLORY! The lifeblood of this place is the cold crack of a tackle, the exaltation of a first down, the ecstasy of a two-point conversion… the sheer bliss of a Win.
But when their all-star quarterback, Dylan Whitley (The Boy with the Million Dollar Arm™) goes missing, an unwelcome but familiar gloom returns to Texas. For he isn’t the first Bison boy to disappear.
Gossip spreads like wildfire. Accusations as to how and where and why Dylan vanished grow violent. Monsters lurk beneath the ground.
With Officer Starsha Clark on the case, aided by Dylan’s hotshot brother Joel—recently arrived from New York carrying secrets of his own—new clues reveal themselves at every turn. Fresh evidence is uncovered by the hour. Whispers from the dark beckon. A town is buried in shame once again.
And just what… or where… or who…. are the Bright Lands?
