Hats Off! to Kim Church whose debut novel Byrd has been short-listed for the 2015 Chautauqua Prize. A novel told in vignettes and letters, Byrd is a meditation on family, the choices we make, and the ripples of consequence that spread out through the years. Readers lauded Church’s ability to take the subject of adoption and shine new light upon it, in a writing style that is “succinct; Church says a lot with few words, picking her details wisely.” It is a novel, another said, with “strength and power, and a deft and delicate touch.”
