Share this story with your world:

Amy Jo Burns, author of SHINER (Riverhead), will participate in a Here Magazine virtual event via Instagram Live on Wednesday, May 13 at 2:30pm (ET).

On a lush mountaintop trapped in time, two women vow to protect each other at all costs – and one young girl must defy her father to survive. Rich with epic love and epic loss, and diving deep into a world that is often forgotten but still part of America, SHINER reveals the hidden story behind two generations’ worth of Appalachian heartbreak and resolve. Amy Jo Burns brings readers a taut debut novel about modern female myth-making in a land of men.

Burns is also the author of the memoir Cinderland. Her writing has appeared in The Paris Review Daily, Tin House, Ploughshares, Gay Magazine, Electric Literature, Literary Hub, and The Paris Review Daily, and the anthology Not That Bad.
