Cate McGowan

This Friday, July 10th, drop by Writer’s Block bookstore to meet Cate McGowan, author of the collection True Places Never Are, which won the 2014 Moon City Short Fiction Award.

The book’s title borrows from Moby Dick: “It is not down on any map: true places never are.” McGowan’s characters are indeed off the map; they venture into wondrous worlds as knotty and distressing as the places they aim to leave. Her characters represent an unusual hodgepodge of everyman- children, men, and women who inhabit different eras and countries, all sharing the need for deliverance. McGowan teaches writing at Valencia College.
