Jenny Shank - The Ringer

Historic LoDo: Local journalist and writer Jenny Shank will read from and sign her debut novel The Ringer ($28.00 Permanent Press). “Jenny Shank has written a gritty, beautiful novel about growing up in urban America. Two decent, hard-working families share a love of baseball and the same city streets, which should be enough to unite them. Instead a police raid goes wrong, shots ring out, and the families find themselves marooned on opposite sides of a racial divide. Shank insists the reader consider both points of view, with startling results. Her characters are beautifully drawn and you feel as though you’re watching life itself unfold in these pages.” —Helen Thorpe, author of Just Like Us
