Join us for a reading and conversation with Jennifer Dupree, author of The Miraculous Flight
of Owen Leach (Apprentice House, May 2022.)
What happens when 19-year-old Sophia, alone and exhausted, follows a fleeting impulse and tosses her screaming infant son out a window? What if Rose, standing below, looks up and reaches out? How far will Rose go to get custody if Sophia refuses to hand over her son? What will be the cost to Hank and Rose’s marriage? How does a desperate mother gain control in an uncontrollable world? The Miraculous Flight of Owen Leach is a novel about what it means to be a “good” mother and who gets to decide.
