The recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, Danielle earned the Milkweed National Fiction Prize in 2011 for her book, The Long-Shining Waters. Take a break from your workweek and join us as Danielle discusses the creative process of her novel that is centered on Lake Superior and explores the power of place and the fluidity of time. She'll also share a sneak peek of her latest work. Book clubs, readers and writers will all enjoy a fascinating glimpse into the life of this published author.
