      Madeline Ffitch – Stay and Fight

      Join us in the Readings Gallery for a reading from this breakout sensation and Indie Next Great Read selection.

      Set in Appalachia, a region know for its independent spirit, Stay and Fight shakes up what It means to be a family, to live well, to make peace with nature, and to make deals with the system. it is a protest novel that challenges our notions of effective action. It is a family novel that refuses to limit the term. And it is a marvel of storytelling that both breaks with tradition and celebrates it. Best of all, it is full of flawed, cantankerous, flesh-and-blood characters who remind us that conflict isn’t the end of love, but the real beginning.

      Absorbingly spun, perfectly voiced, and disruptively political, Stay and Fight forces us to reimagine an Appalachia – and an America – we think we know. And it takes us, laughing and fighting, into a new understanding of what it means to love and to be free. Madeline Ffitch cofounded the punk theater company Missoula Oblongata and is part of the direct-action collective Appalachia Resist! She is the author of the story collection Valparaiso, Round the Horn.
