Diane Cantor to Present Her Novel
Diane Cantor will present her novel on Saturday, April 14th at 3 p.m. at City Lights Bookstore. Set in the early 1970s, When Nighttime Shadows Fall follows Laura Bauer as she decides to leave college and head 50 miles north of her comfortable Atlanta home to manage a federally funded project aiding pregnant teenagers from the back roads of Appalachia. Almost as young as her clients, Laura is immediately confronted with—and almost overwhelmed by—a variety of young women in desperate circumstances, having no other source of prenatal care. Cantor portrays the world of these girls with compassion, hardscrabble humor, and reverence for their families’ capacities to prevail despite hardships.
Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, Diane Cantor has written plays that have been performed in Georgia and a weekly serial for the Savannah Morning-News for several years. Her historical novel, The Poisoned Table, was nominated for the 2016 Georgia Author of the Year Awards First Novel category and is a current selection for the American Association of University Women’s National Adelante book clubs.
