This week, Lauren is in conversation with novelist Jamie Harrison, author of The Center of Everything. Their conversation meanders through family mythologies; her father is renowned Montana poet and writer Jim Harrison. Jamie ruminates on her lure to water — particularly to the Yellowstone River in Livingston, Montana — and the slippery nature of memory.
Jamie Harrison, who has lived in Montana with her family for more than thirty years, has worked as a caterer, a gardener, and an editor, and is the author of six novels. She was awarded the Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Association Reading the West Book Award for The Widow Nash and was a finalist for the High Plains Book Award.
