Stormbird Press will publish Rick Hodges’s debut novel, To Follow Elephants, this spring.

In To Follow Elephants, young Owen Dorner searches for his father in an African prison–and for the truth about why he is there. African elephant biologist Wanjeri helps him navigate Kenya’s dusty plains and crumbling cities under the shadow of her uncle, the prison’s warden–and unveils her own family’s secrets–as a young elephant learns the ways of the world from his herd’s matriarch. In a moving portrayal of elephant civilization, parallel tales of intrigue and survival unfold, masterfully enriching our understanding of what it means to be human.

We’ll gather in the Fellowship Hall to hear Rick tell us about the book and to celebrate the publication.
