NARROW Gauge Book Coop’s Summer Author Series continues with Kali Fajardo-Anstine, author of Woman of Light, this Saturday, June 25, at 5 p.m.

Kali Fajardo-Anstine is also the author of Sabrina & Cornina, a finalist for the National Book Award, the PEN/Bingham Prize, the Story Prize, and the winner of an American Book Award. She is the 2021 recipient of the Metcalf Award from the American Academy of Arts, and is from Denver, Colorado.
