Author Visit: Kim Barnes

Enjoy an evening with Northwest author Kim Barnes at Walla Walla Public Library. Her new novel is In the Kingdom of Men, which tells the story of a young woman who moves from poverty in Oklahoma to an Arabian American Oil Company compound in Saudi Arabia. Barnes found inspiration for this novel in the 1960s experiences of her aunt and uncle. Barnes was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for her first memoir, In the Wilderness: Coming of Age in Unknown Country, and also authored a second memoir and three novels, including A Country Called Home. The Library has multiple copies of In the Kingdom of Men to loan.
