DJ Green in conversation with Miriam Gershow

DJ Green will read and discuss her new book No More Empty Spaces, published by She Writes Press (2024), with writer Miriam Gershow.

In this timely story of how science impacts our daily lives--even if we try to close our eyes to it--divorced American geologist Will Ross uproots his children from home and takes them to Turkey, where he is to help build Kayakale Dam. But the earthquake-prone region where the dam is to be built is a dangerously shifting landscape--every bit as unstable as the broken American family that seeks to heal itself there. No More Empty Spaces will make you think about how you relate to yourself, your family, and the Earth and its ever-changing processes.

DJ Green is a writer, geologist, and sailor. No More Empty Spaces is her first novel. She lives near the Sandia Mountains in Placitas, New Mexico, and cruises the Salish Sea on her sailboat during the summers.

Miriam Gershow's debut novel, The Local News, was hailed as "unusually credible and precise" and "deftly heartbreaking" by The New York Times and was a finalist for an Oregon Book Award. Her stories have appeared in The Georgia Review, Gulf Coast, and Black Warrior Review, among other journals, and her creative nonfiction has been featured in journals including Salon and Craft Literary. She is the recipient of a Fiction Fellowship from the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing and an Oregon Literary Fellowship, and her stories have been listed in the Robert Olen Butler Prize Stories. Her newest book of short stories Survival Tips: Stories was published in March 2024 by Propeller Books. She teaches writing at the University of Oregon.
