Thistlefoot Book Talk & Puppet Show

June 10, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join us for a special book talk and puppet show by Nevada Reads 2023 author GennaRose Nethercott as she brings her acclaimed novel, Thistlefoot, to life with hand-crafted shadow panoramas & puppetry!

Book signing to follow.

GennaRose Nethercott is a writer and folklorist. Her first book, The Lumberjack’s Dove, was selected by Louise Glück as a winner of the National Poetry Series, and whether authoring novels, poems, ballads, or even fold-up paper cootie catchers, her projects are all rooted in myth—and what our stories reveal about who we are. She tours widely, performing strange tales (sometimes with puppets in tow), and researches/writes for the podcast Lore. She lives in the woodlands of Vermont, beside an old cemetery. Thistlefoot is her debut novel.

This program is produced by Nevada Humanities and is made possible with support from Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
